When it comes to community involvement and leadership, Auggies rock.
That’s why Augsburg is the only Minnesota college or university invited to participate in the Bon Jovi Community Service College Campaign when the internationally known rock band stops at the Xcel Energy Center on Sunday, April 7, for its “Because We Can” tour.
Nearly 180,000 hours of community service by Augsburg College students last year earned the college a spot on the 2012 President’s Higher Education Community Service Honor Roll with Distinction. This is the fourth time Augsburg has been named to the Honor Roll with Distinction.
For the second year in a row, Augsburg was named to the President’s Higher Education Community Service Honor Roll with Distinction. This Honor Roll recognizes institutions of higher education that support innovative, effective and exemplary community service programs.
Factors considered include the scope and innovation of service projects, the percentage of student who participate and the extent to which service-learning courses are offered.
Of the 528 colleges named, Augsburg was among 127 that were specially honored “with distinction.” In addition, nine colleges received special awards for extraordinary service and special achievement.
