Loyola Marymount University has been named to the President’s Honor Roll for Community Service, according to the Corporation for National and Community Service.
LMU was cited for its high level of student involvement in community service programs. The Honor Roll program is jointly administered by the Department of Education, Department of Housing and Urban Development, Campus Compact and the American Council on Education.
“Our nation's students are a critical part of the equation and vital to our efforts to tackle the most persistent challenges we face,” said Patrick Corvington, CEO of the organization. “They have achieved impactful results and demonstrated the value of putting knowledge into practice to help renew America through service.”
LMU was selected for this honor in 2007, when the university was listed on the honor roll “with distinction.” In 2008, the Center for Service and Action was lauded for student involvement in domestic and international programs.
Launched in 2006, the Community Service Honor Roll recognizes colleges and universities for their commitment to service-learning and civic engagement. LMU’s selection was based on the strength and innovation of its service projects, percentage of student participation in service activities, incentives for service and the extent to which the school offers academic service-learning courses.
