Truman Included on President’s Honor Roll

Truman has been included on the 2009 President’s Higher Education Community Service Honor Roll.

Launched in 2006, the Honor Roll recognizes colleges and universities nationwide that support innovative and effective community service and service-learning progress.

This is the second consecutive year Truman has applied for, and been accepted to, the Honor Roll.

Baillie Cloyd, the current AmeriCorps VISTA member on campus, prepared Truman’s application using information gathered from service-learning course projects, Service-Learning Advantage student organization initiatives, and Truman volunteer information.

The service-learning projects cited for the Honor Roll included: ENG 412 Practicum: “Teaching English as a Second Language,” to emphasize academic service-learning on campus; the Martin Luther King, Jr. Challenge to emphasize Truman’s recent participation in a national day of service; and Science on Saturday to highlight an entirely student-initiated co-curricular service-learning project.

The Honor Roll is a program of the Corporation for National and Community Service. For more information, visit To view the complete honor roll, go to
