University of Idaho’s outreach and engagement efforts were recognized this week by the White House. The UI was listed on the President’s Higher Education Community Service Honor Roll for the eighth consecutive year. UI has been on the list since it began in 2006.
A total of 766 higher education institutions were named to the 2014 honor roll, which recognized recipients for one or more of four areas of service: general community service, interfaith community service, economic community service and education community service. UI earned this distinction in the education category.
“UI creates incredible opportunities to serve in our local community, regionally, nationally and internationally,” said Bruce Pitman, UI dean of students and vice provost of student affairs. “For our students, these are important learning and service experiences that can change lives.”
