Mount Union Nationally Recognized for Community Service

April 27, 2010

Mount Union College has been named to the United States President's Higher Education Community Service Honor Roll.

The College has been recognized for its many contributions to the Alliance community through its community service and service-learning programs.

'I am thrilled that Mount Union College was included among this group of civically-engaged colleges and universities,' said Amanda Espenschied-Reilly, director of service-learning and community service. 'I'd like to thank all the students, faculty and staff of Mount Union for their dedication to community service and service-learning.'

According to Espenschied-Reilly, the College plans to submit its application for the honor roll again next year.

The honor roll is in its first year and was created in response to President Bush's call to service. Colleges and Universities have been asked to build upon their missions in support of their local communities and the nation as a whole through their volunteer services.

The honor roll is sponsored by the Corporation for National and Community Service, the President's Council on Service and Civic Participation, the USA Freedom Corps, and the U.S. Departments of Education and Housing and Urban Development.
