UNCG was recognized for excellence in community service and education in the recently announced 2015 President’s Higher Education Community Service Honor Roll.

The honor roll highlights institutions of higher education that support exemplary community service programs and raise the visibility of effective practices in campus-community partnerships. UNCG is the only UNC system institution to receive “With Distinction” honors in the categories of General Community Service and Education.

“Community engagement with a focus on citizen leadership has been integral to the UNCG experience since the founding of the university” said Dr. Cathy H. Hamilton, director of UNCG’s Office of Leadership and Service Learning. “Accountability and responsibility for the well-being of all are profound and pervasive values embodied in the culture of UNCG faculty, staff, students and alumni. ”

Launched in 2006, the annual recognition is administered by the Corporation for National and Community Service. UNCG, whose motto is “Service,” has been recognized every year since the inception of the honor roll.
