Sac State honored again for community service

05-17-2011


For the third consecutive year, Sacramento State has been named to the President’s Higher Education Community Service Honor Roll by the Corporation for National and Community Service. To earn this honor, an institution of higher education must demonstrate that its students, faculty and staff are engaged in meaningful service that achieves measurable results in the community.

As the informing letter states: “The Honor Roll recognizes higher education institutions that reflect the values of exemplary community service and achieve meaningful outcomes in their communities.  Your selection to the Honor Roll is recognition from the highest levels of the federal government of your commitment to service and civic engagement on your campus and in the nation.”

This year’s application process and criteria were more challenging as the campus had to provide evidence of the impact of students and their service on the communities served. University projects included in the application were:

For General Community Service:
  • Community Engagement Center
  • Autism Center for Excellence
  • Be Smart with Body Art (Collaborative project between Sac State and UC Davis)

For Special Focus Areas:
  • College Assistance Migrant Program (CAMP) in partnership with Ethnic Studies and KVIE Public Television
  • 65th Street Corridor Project
  • Writing Partners,  a program of the Community Engagement Center.
