Community service programs named to honor roll

For the fourth consecutive year, UW-Eau Claire has been recognized for its outstanding community service programs by a federal agency charged with fostering an ethic of volunteerism and service in America.

UW-Eau Claire was among 115 public and private colleges, universities and professional schools named to the 2009 President’s Higher Education Community Service Honor Roll, with distinction for general community service. The honor roll is compiled by the Corporation for National and Community Service.

The program is designed to increase public awareness of the contributions that college students are making within their communities and across the country through volunteer service.

UW-Eau Claire was the only Wisconsin school, public or private, named to the Honor Roll with distinction every one of the four years since the honor roll was instituted in 2006.
