Graceland University has been named to 2013 President’s Higher Education Community Service Honor Roll for the second year in a row. The Corporation for National and Community Service (CNCS) is a federal agency that publishes the list annually to honor higher education institutions. This year, 690 institutions across the country received this distinguished honor.

“This award means that Graceland is among the top institutions across the country in terms of community service. It shows that we’re dedicated to serving the community around us and that our projects have had really successful results,” said Julie Neas, Director of the Volunteer Center of Southern Iowa.

Graceland’s community service projects upheld this year included the work of Enactus students, helping both local businesses and communities in Zambia and the Philippines, and Graceland’s annual basketball camp. Students also volunteer through a number of other campus organizations, including Outreach International, Senate and Campus Ministries.
