SUNY Cobleskill Named to President’s Community Service Honor Roll for Seventh Year

SUNY Cobleskill has again been named to the President’s Higher Education Community Service Honor Roll, the highest federal recognition for an institution’s commitment to community, service-learning, and civic engagement. This is the seventh consecutive year that SUNY Cobleskill has been recognized on the Honor Roll.

“Given SUNY Cobleskill’s long history of community involvement, particularly its encouragement of its students to be active participants in solving for the community’s challenges, it comes as no surprise that SUNY Cobleskill was named once again to the President’s Higher Education Community Service Honor Roll. Congratulations to the entire SUNY Cobleskill family on this much deserved recognition,” said SUNY Chancellor Nancy L. Zimpher.

SUNY Cobleskill was honored in the General Community Service category for demonstrating a commitment to improving the quality of life in the community beyond campus. Institutions acknowledged in the General Community Service category engage in service that addresses education, health, economic opportunity, the environment, disaster preparedness or other human needs including support for veterans and military families.

The President’s Higher Education Community Service Honor Roll has been administered by the Corporation for National and Community Service, the federal agency for volunteering and service, since 2006 in collaboration with the U.S. Department of Education and the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development, as well as the American Council on Education, Campus Compact, and the Interfaith Youth Core.
