FEATURE STORY: Fresno State is recognized nationally for serving others
Many times the acts of service performed by faculty, staff, and students go unnoticed, but after decades of serving the community, Fresno State has been recognized at the national level with the Presidential Award for General Community Service.
Presented by the Corporation for National and Community Service, the award recognizes the university's outstanding commitment to serving others. The Honor Roll’s Presidential Award is the highest federal recognition a school can achieve in the area of civic engagement.
"For us, as an institution, it means a great deal," says Chris Fiorentino, director of the Jan and Bud Richter Center for Community Engagement and Service-Learning. "It means that the thousands of hours that our students have put in, the efforts of our faculty, the work put in by administration — really is being recognized at the highest level."
