Grand Valley State University has been named to the 2009 President’s Higher Education Community Service Honor Roll With Distinction. The selection to the Honor Roll is recognition from the highest levels of the federal government for commitment to service and civic engagement.

More than 700 colleges and universities were named to the Honor Roll, with 115 receiving “distinction.” Institutions were picked for their scope and innovation of service projects, percentage of student participation incentives for service, and the extent to which the school offers academic service-learning courses.

Grand Valley joins four other state institutions in this recognition: Delta College, Kalamazoo College, Michigan State University and University of Michigan.

The Corporation for National and Community Service oversees the Honor Roll award along with the Department of Education, Department of Housing and Urban Development, Campus Compact and the American Council on Education.
