Seattle University is the only local college to make the President’s 2010 Honor Roll for exemplary, innovative and community service programs. The Corporation for National and Community Service administers the Honor Roll, which admitted universities nationwide, for their impact on issues from literacy and neighborhood revitalization to supporting at-risk youth. 

The President’s Higher Education Community Service Honor Roll, launched in 2006, annually recognizes institutions of higher education for their commitment to and achievement in community service. The President’s Honor Roll increases the public’s awareness of the contributions that colleges and their students make to local communities and the nation as a whole. 

“Based on the high caliber of applicants we receive from your institution, it is no surprise to see Seattle U honored for valuing volunteering, service-learning, and civic engagement. We’re thankful to have you as a partner and appreciate your ongoing support of public service,” said Obie Pressman, Peace Corps regional recruiter.  

President Obama has pledged to make service a central cause of his administration and wishes to commemorate the significant role that higher institutions, their students, staff, and faculty play in helping to solve pressing social problems in the nation’s communities.
