Nominations are now being accepted for the subject award. Last year, Ebony Norris won this award for our campus.

The Community Impact Student Award recognizes one student per NC Campus Compact member institution who exhibits outstanding leadership and innovative approaches in their community service or service-learning endeavors both on their campus and within their community. Each year, the award is presented at the North Carolina Campus Compact Student Conference where student winners receive statewide recognition during the Citizenship, Service, Networking and Partnerships (CSNAP) Student Conference, which will be held this year at Central Piedmont Community College in Charlotte, NC on November 1st and 2nd.

President's Honor Roll LogoFayetteville State University has been named to the 2012 President's Higher Education Community Service Honor Roll, the highest federal recognition a college or university can receive for itscommitment to volunteering, service-learning and civic engagement.

The Corporation for National and Community Service, which administers the annual Honor Roll award, recognized more than 700 colleges and universities for their impact on issues from poverty and homelessness to environmental justice. On campus across the country, thousands of students joined their faculty and developed innovative programs and projects to meet local needs using the skills gained in their classrooms. Business students served as consultants to budget-strapped nonprofits and businesses, law students volunteered at legal clinics, as dozens of others organized anti-hunger campaigns.

The President's Higher Education Community Service Honor Roll, launched in 2006, annually recognizes institutions of higher education for their commitment to and achievement in community service. The President's Honor Roll increases the public's awareness of the contributions that colleges and their students make to local communities and the nation as a whole. President Obama has pledged to make service a central cause of his administration and wishes to commemorate the significant role that higher institutions, their students, staff, and faculty play in helping to solve pressing social problems in the nation's communities.
