The President’s Higher Education Community Service Honor Roll annually highlights the role colleges and universities play in solving community problems and placing more students on a lifelong path of civic engagement by recognizing institutions that achieve meaningful, measurable outcomes in the communities they serve. The Honor Roll is a program of the federal Corporation for National and Community Service (CNCS).
2015 Honor Roll
More than two dozen MACC member colleges and universities were named to the 2015 Honor Roll, announced in October 2016, making Massachusetts again one of the most broadly recognized states in the nation. Many of the MACC members honored received the award in more than one category.
Among the MACC member campuses honored were Springfield College, one of just four institutions across the country to earn Presidential Award, the highest federal honor. This was the second year in a row that a MACC institution earned top honors. UMass Dartmouth was one of 16 Presidential Award Finalists named nationally, earning the honor in the Economic Opportunity category.
2014 Honor Roll
Three MACC members—more than from any other state—earned top honors from the President’s Higher Education Community Service Honor Roll in 2014. Wheelock College was named one of just four Presidential Award winners in the country. Wheelock was also named an Honor Roll Presidential finalist in the General Community Service category. Also a finalist in that category was UMass Dartmouth, while Springfield College was named a finalist in the Education category.
This year the Honor Roll recognized higher education institutions in four categories:
- General Community Service
- Interfaith Community Service
- Economic Opportunity
MACC members were named to the Honor Roll in every category.
