JWU Named to President’s Community Service Honor Roll

JWU students build career skills while giving back.All four JWU campuses have been named to the President’s Higher Education Community Service Honor Roll, the highest federal recognition for commitment to service-learning and civic engagement.

This is the eighth consecutive year that some or all of our campuses have collectively earned this distinction.

How the Schools Were Selected
Nationwide, 690 schools earned a spot on this prestigious list.

Honorees were chosen based on a series of selection factors, including scope and innovation of service projects, percentage of student participation in service activities, incentives for service, and the extent to which the school offers academic service-learning courses.

Building Leadership Skills through Community Service
Community service, volunteerism and service-learning are integral to JWU’s educational philosophy. During the 2011–2012 academic year, JWU students performed more than 250,000 hours of community service.

Students at each of JWU’s campuses do their part to make a difference — whether it’s through class projects for local nonprofits, community service related to academics and volunteer work through Greek organizations or student clubs.
