WEST HAVEN–The University of New Haven has been selected for the 2009 President’s Higher Education Community Service Honor Roll. More than 500 colleges and universities received this honor throughout the nation, yet UNH is one of only nine institutions to have received this award in the state of Connecticut. Service learning has become increasingly popular among college students and UNH continues to maintain its commitment to community service.

The President’s Higher Education Community Service Honor Roll, launched in 2006, recognizes colleges and universities nationwide that support innovative and effective community service and service-learning programs. The Honor Roll is a program of the Corporation for National and Community Service, and is sponsored by the President’s Council on Service and Civic Participation, the USA Freedom Corps, and the U.S. Departments of Education and Housing and Urban Development.

The university offers more than 80 undergraduate degrees and more than 25 graduate degrees.
