• San Diego Schools Get Barack Obama’s Prestigious Honor


    SAN DIEGO (CNS) – Two institutions of higher learning in San Diego were
    named today to President Barack Obama’s Community Service Honor Roll With
    Distinction.
    The president lauded UC San Diego and Cal Western School of Law for
    their support of volunteering, civic engagement and service learning.
    A total of 15 colleges in California and 114 nationwide were recognized
    by Obama.
    “Giving back is a tradition of UC San Diego,’ said Penny Rue, the
    university’s vice chancellor of student affairs. “Community engagement and
    public service are ingrained in the educational experience at our university.’
    UCSD was honored for Teams in Engineering Service, in which students
    with technical and creative skills help nonprofit organizations; offering a
    community service minor at Thurgood Marshall College; and a community service
    program called “Alternative Breaks,’ which sponsors international trips to
    perform charity work.
