For the third year in a row, Wesleyan College has been named to the President’s Higher Education Community Service Honor Roll.
This year, Wesleyan was one of 83 schools nationally — and the only school in Georgia — to receive the Honor Roll with Distinction award, according to a news release. In all, 635 schools, including 12 from Georgia, were recognized.
Schools were chosen based on factors such as the innovation of their programs, the percentage of total students who participate in community service and whether they offer academic service learning programs.
More than two-thirds of Wesleyan students are involved in community service activities, according to the college. Many volunteer through the college’s Lane Center for Community Engagement and Service, which offers programs such as Aunt Maggie’s Kitchen Table, tutoring and WOW Days for Macon.
The honor roll is a program of the Corporation for National and Community Service.
