Wake Forest Honored for Service

What a fitting honor for a university that espouses service!

Wake Forest University, whose motto is Pro Humaitate, was named to the 2012 President’s Higher Education Community Service Honor Roll.  The University is one of 24 schools in North Carolina to be recognized for engaging its students, faculty and staff in meaningful service that achieves measurable results in the community.

The Honor Roll is announced by the Corporation for National and Community Service (CNCS), a federal agency that leads the White House's national call to service initiative, United We Serve.

From classes that incorporate service learning to projects outside the classroom, Wake Forest encourages students to cultivate responsibility and civic-mindedness. More than half of undergraduates make volunteerism a priority in their educational experience. Many volunteer regularly at local service agencies, while others travel around the country or abroad to participate in projects.

The CNCS, which has administered the Honor Roll since 2006, admitted a total of 642 schools to colleges and universities for their impact on issues from literacy and neighborhood revitalization to supporting at-risk youth.
