Campus Compact: College Makes Honor Roll
Campus Compact, a national coalition of college presidents dedicated to encouraging community service among college students, has named Rose State College to the Education Community Service Honor Roll for 2010.
According to the organization, Rose State was named to the roll for its campus outreach programs involving its students, including its student civic programs and activities like Habitat for Humanity or its Adopt-a-School program.
“Being included in the Honor Roll recognizes the depth and breadth of activities that you, your faculty, staff and students employ to successfully partner with the next generation of engaged citizens to develop leaders who are willing and able to confront the challenges we face in society,” the award letter states.
Campus Compact said the award is in conjunction with the Corporation for National and Community Service.
“Rose State’s involvement with all aspects of our community is a central part of our mission, whether it’s helping elementary school students, hosting children at our holiday party, planting trees, or offering wellness programs,” said Rose State College President Terry Britton. “We’re very pleased to be honored by Campus Compact for this work.”
