Tusculum College Makes Presidential Honor Roll For Community Service

Tusculum College has been placed on the President's Higher Education Community Service honor roll for the seventh consecutive year.

The honor -- named by the Corporation for National and Community Service and the U.S. Department of Education -- recognizes exemplary service efforts.

It is the highest federal recognition a school can achieve for commitment to service-learning and civic engagement.

Tusculum College was selected for the Honor Roll for its work in education, hunger, homelessness, environmental stewardship, economic empowerment and youth development in the East Tennessee region.

WORK WITH MANY GROUPS

Tusculum College students have worked with Rural Resources, Greeneville-Greene County Community Ministries and Food Bank, Greene County Habitat for Humanity, Critter Works, Mustang Alley Horse Rescue, Inc., the Greeneville City and Greene County school systems, the Boys & Girls Club of Greeneville & Greene County, the Mission Soup Kitchen at Tabernacle Presbyterian Church and many other groups.

SERVICE PART OF TUSCULUM'S CORE

"Since 1794 Tusculum College has desired to teach its students to serve their communities and to develop strong values that included service to humankind," said Tusculum College President Nancy B. Moody.

She added that service projects and service learning experiences are part of the core of Tusculum College's mission, that includes the Civic Arts and service to others as part of its overall mission.

"I am delighted Tusculum has been honored with this distinction; service and civic engagement are an integral part of campus life and campus culture," said Rachel Edens, program director of the Center for Civic Advancement at Tusculum College.

A VARIETY OF FACTORS

Honorees are chosen based on a series of selection factors including scope and innovation of service projects, percentage of student participation in service activities, incentives for service and the extent to which the school offers academic service-learning courses.

In addition, numerous projects have been completed by staff, faculty and other volunteer groups associated with Tusculum College.

The Honor Roll is a program of the Corporation for National and Community Service, in collaboration with the Department of Education, the Department of Housing and Urban Development and the President's Council on Service and Civic Participation.

The President's Higher Education Community Service Honor Roll is presented during the annual conference of the American Council on Education.
