COE’s Service Noted in President’s Higher Education Community Service Honor Roll Award
Georgia Southern was recently named in the 2013 President’s Higher Education Community Service Honor Roll from the Corporation for National and Community Service. The award recognizes the commitment of students, faculty and staff to community service in many areas, including those of COE’s education candidates. This is the first time Georgia Southern has applied for and been recognized with the award. The data from the 2011-12 academic year indicated that 1670 pre-service educators contributed 305,860 hours.
“This award recognizes the dedication of our students, faculty and staff to invest their lives in this community,” said Todd Deal, Ph.D., director of the Office of Student Leadership and Civic Engagement (OSLCE). “A significant part of our mission is service to the region, and this award demonstrates that we certainly are meeting that.” As a part of the application, Georgia Southern reported service by its pre-service teachers and nursing students, as well as the community service efforts coordinated through the OSLCE; however, it does not include the countless hours of service by the University’s Greek organizations.
