President Obama’s Community Service Honor Roll Recognizes Eastern

For the sixth time in the past seven years, Eastern Connecticut State University has been named to the President’s Higher Education Community Service Honor Roll by the Corporation for National and Community Service (CNCS). These results, for the 2013-14 academic year, were announced this fall.

Eastern was selected for the General Community Service category, which recognizes institutions that address local issues — particularly those affecting low-income individuals — such as education, health, economic opportunity, the environment and other human needs. Honorees are chosen based on a series of selection factors, including the scope and innovation of service projects, and measurable outcomes as a result of the service.
