RIVERSIDE, Calif. (Dec. 8, 2014)—California Baptist University has been listed on the 2014 President's Higher Education Community Honor Roll for exemplary community service. Approximately 700 institutions qualified for the list nationwide.
"The President's Honor Roll recognizes higher education institutions whose community service efforts achieve meaningful outcomes in their communities," said Ted Miller, chief of external affairs for the Corporation for National and Community Service. "This distinction is the highest federal recognition colleges and universities can receive for community service, service-learning and civic engagement. This recognition is part of our strategic commitment to engage millions of college students in service and celebrate the critical role of higher education in strengthening communities."
To qualify, CBU submitted a lengthy application outlining the university's community service and service learning participation. Students, faculty and staff contributed more than 600,000 service hours in 2013, with a value of more than $16 million to the community.
Community service and service learning impact two of CBU's Core 4 student outcomes: globally minded and equipped to serve.
