Rollins was recently named by USA Today as one of the top 20 colleges most committed to community service

“The recognition by USA Today is a direct reflection of the important work of Rollins students and community partners that are dedicated to progress and justice in our global community,” said Director of Community Engagement Micki Meyer.

Earlier this month, Rollins was also honored by the Corporation for National and Community Service (CNCS) as a leader among institutions of higher education for its support of volunteering, service-learning and civic engagement. Rollins was one of six colleges and universities to receive Presidential Awards in the 2010 President’s Higher Education Community Service Honor Roll, the highest federal recognition a college or university can receive for its commitment to community service. This marks the fourth year in a row CNCS named Rollins College to the President’s Higher Education Community Service Honor Roll With Distinction for exemplary service efforts and service to disadvantaged youth and the first year that the College was named as a Presidential Award recipient.
