<p>*TUSCALOOSA, Ala. — The University of Alabama has been named to the 2010 President’s Higher Education Community Service Honor Roll with Distinction, one of the highest federal awards a college or university can receive for its commitment to volunteering, service learning and civic engagement.
“The Presidential Honor Roll formally recognizes UA’s commitment to teaching students to identify needs within their communities, inspiring students to speak up, and equipping students with the skills to effect change within those communities,” said Stephen Black, director of the UA Center for Ethics & Social Responsibility.</p>
<p>In the 2009-2010 academic year, some 15,100 UA students completed more than 710,000 hours of community service with more than 120 community partners. Additionally, 120 UA faculty members offered service-learning courses, and an estimated 5,300 students participated in them.</p>

<p>PS. I’m only joking with Atlanta as I know that GDI’s do community service as well.</p>
