For the sixth consecutive year, Hastings College students, faculty and staff are being recognized for their meaningful and productive community engagement.
The Corporation for National and Community Service has named Hastings College to the President’s Higher Education Community Service Honor Roll which honors colleges and universities nationwide which perform exceptional community service.
“Service is a value that we hold dear at Hastings College, from President Don Jackson, who recently spent a Friday at Alcott Elementary reading to second graders, to every student who walks our campus,” said Dr. Gilbert Hinga, Vice President for Student Affairs. "One of the very first experiences that new students have at Hastings College involves volunteerism and service through the projects they perform during New Student Days orientation. We engage in service because it is an invaluable part of our identity. It is certainly a wonderful bonus to receive this national recognition.”
