HIU Receives Presidential Recognition for Community Service

Posted: June 22, 2015

Hope International University was named to The President’s Higher Education Community Service Honor Roll during the 2014-2015 academic year. This marks HIU’s fourth year as a member of this distinguished Honor Roll.  The award recognizes institutions of higher education throughout the nation that support exemplary community service programs and raise the visibility of best practices in campus-community partnerships.  It is the highest federal recognition of colleges and universities for commitment to service learning and civic engagement.

HIU’s 2014-2015 service projects included outreaches to both local and international communities. Faculty and staff joined 376 students (more than 50% of the traditional undergraduate student population), together contributing nearly 5,000 hours of service.

“Foundationally, this is our mission,” said Bryan Sands, Director of Campus Ministries. “We are both humbled and honored to receive this prestigious recognition yet again.”
