Background: Recognizing that community service and civic engagement are among the historic missions of most colleges and universities, the Corporation’s Board of Directors has identified Strategic Plan targets that include significant increases in: the use of service-learning in higher education, the number of college students performing community service, and, in particular, the number of college students providing tutoring and other services designed to promote the high school completion and college access of youth in disadvantaged circumstances. The Honor Roll program supports these Strategic Plan goals as well as those of the First Lady’s Helping America’s Youth initiative. The first year of the Honor Roll program was extremely successful, with 511 colleges submitting applications. Further information about the program and first-year Honor Roll members and award winners may be found at http:// www.nationalservice.gov/honorroll. Current Action: As with the first year of the program, information collected in the Honor Roll application will include: data on the scope and impacts of service projects; estimates of the number of enrolled students participating in community service activities; and information on institutional supports for service such as academic servicelearning opportunities, community service coordination offices, and scholarships and other benefits in recognition of student service. A special emphasis section of the 2007 Honor Roll application will solicit descriptions of exemplary service projects focusing on Youth Education Support. Last year’s special focus section on Hurricane Relief has been deleted. Correspondingly, the Presidential Awards for Hurricane Relief that were made as part of the 2006 Honor Roll program will be replaced by Presidential Awards for Youth Education Support. Meanwhile, application guidance will emphasize that information concerning new or ongoing hurricane relief efforts may be included among the five exemplary VerDate Aug<31>2005 16:03 Dec 05, 2006 Jkt 211001 project descriptions an institution may submit in support of a potential Presidential Award for General Community Service. The Corporation will consult with the higher education community and others concerning potential special emphasis topics for future years. The selection of institutions for receipt of Presidential Awards under the President’s Higher Education Community Service Honor Roll program will be based on information provided in the application. The deadline for institutions to submit applications is July 15, 2007. It is expected that a similar application/ information collection activity will be repeated annually, with a similar annual deadline. Type of Review: Renewal.
