For the seventh year in a row, East Carolina University was named to the President’s Higher Education Community Service Honor Roll by the Corporation for National and Community Service. The Honor Roll recognizes exemplary community service and meaningful outcomes in the community. The award is the highest federal recognition that honors a university’s commitment to service and civic engagement.
Winners were announced March 4 at the American Council on Education annual conference in Washington, D.C.
Community outreach at ECU is supported through the efforts of the Volunteer and Service-Learning Center, which engages students in volunteer and service-learning activities that benefit the community while enhancing the students’ academic experiences.
