13 SUNY Campuses Receive Presidential Recognition for Community Service

13 SUNY Campuses Receive Presidential Recognition for Community Service

SUNY Chancellor Zimpher announced this month that 13 SUNY campuses have been named to the 2013 President’s Higher Education Community Service Honor Roll, which recognizes colleges and universities who achieve meaningful, measureable outcomes in the communities they serve throughout the nation and show a clear commitment to community service and service learning.

SUNY Cortland and SUNY Oswego were named to the Honor Roll with distinction, while the following campuses were also recognized:

National Service Statistics: 3.1 million students are engaged in community service; 118 million hours are logged; that service is valued at 2.5 billion dollars

“SUNY students, faculty, and staff have a rich history of giving back not only to the communities that surround our campuses in every region of New York but to populations in need world-wide,” said Chancellor Zimpher. “We are deeply proud to see so many of our campuses recognized again this year on the President’s Higher Education Community Service Honor Roll.”

Chancellor Zimpher was in attendance Monday, March 4 as the 2013 Honor Roll recipients were announced at the American Council on Education’s 95th Annual Meeting Leading Change in Washington, DC.  The 13 SUNY campuses are among 690 higher education institutions that were named to this year’s Honor Roll. Combined, the Honor Roll awardees engaged 3.1 million students in community service for a total of 118 million service hours, a 2.5 billion dollar value to communities across the country.

The President’s Higher Education Community Service Honor Roll, launched in 2006, annually highlights the role colleges and universities play in solving community problems and placing more students on a lifelong path of civic engagement by recognizing institutions that achieve meaningful, measureable outcomes in the communities they serve.
