ST. LAWRENCE DEANERY — The College of Mount St. Joseph has been named to the 2009 President’s Higher Education Community Service Honor Roll, the highest federal recognition a college or university can receive for its commitment to volunteering, service-learning and civic engagement.
“To be on the Community Service Honor Roll is a distinctive privilege for the College of Mount St. Joseph,” said the college’s president Tony Aretz, Ph.D. “It recognizes that our students, faculty and staff are living out the Mount’s mission of service in the classroom and in the community. Service is an important component of being a Catholic academic community and a college sponsored by the Sisters of Charity.”
Honorees are chosen based on a series of selection factors including the 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.
