IUPUI and IU Bloomington each earned a spot on the 2012 President’s Higher Education Community Service Honor 
Roll recognizing substantial civic engagement and outreach efforts by faculty, students and service-learning staff.

IUPUI was among 14 campuses recognized as an honor roll finalist among the 642 college and university campuses so designated.

The Corporation for National and Community Service oversees the honor in collaboration with the U.S. Departments of Education and Housing and Urban Development, Campus Compact and the American Council on Education. Selection factors include the scope and innovation of service projects, how deeply service learning is embedded in curriculum, commitment to long-term campus- community partnerships and measurable community outcomes as a result of the service.
