Rockford, Ill. – Rockford University has been named to the President’s Higher Education Community Service Honor Roll for the eighth consecutive year by The Corporation for National and Community Service (CNCS). The University was recognized for the extraordinary and exemplary community service contributions of its students, faculty, and staff in meeting critical community and national needs.
Since 2006 the 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, measureable outcomes in the communities they serve.
CNCS administers the award in collaboration with the U.S. Department of Education and the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development, as well as the American Council on Education, Campus Compact, and the Interfaith Youth Core. CNCS currently engages more than five million Americans in service through multiple national service initiatives.
