UALR was selected for the 2013 President’s Higher Education Community Service Honor Roll March 4 for commitment to service and civic engagement.
Betsy Hart, coordinator of community relations in the UALR Office of Community Engagement, coordinated the submission process. In her role as the coordinator of community relations, she sees first hand how the University bridges teaching and service.
“Service is essential to accomplishing goal three of the university’s strategic plan to ‘lead in revitalizing and enriching communities and neighborhoods through critical initiatives and to graduate students who are committed to community engagement,'” said Hart.
According to Wendy Spencer, chief executive officer for CNCS, the honor roll recognizes higher education institutions that reflect the values of exemplary community service and achieve meaningful outcomes in their communities.
