From Hastings College:
The Corporation for National and Community Service has named Hastings College to the President’s Higher Education Community Service Honor Roll.

“It’s wonderful to be named to the President’s Higher Education Community Service Honor roll for the fifth year in a row,” said Dr. Jean Heriot, Director of Service Learning at HC. “Hastings College has a strong dedication to service and learning through service that helps our students develop their sense of place in the world, their sense of what’s right, and their commitments to the common good. Over ninety percent of our students engage in some form of community service.”
