Web site: Augsburg one of nation's most focused on community service


Augsburg College has made BestCollegesOnline’s list of 20 colleges most committed to community service, published recently in USA Today.

The paper warns that the list is “limited and subjective,” but said it should be taken as a list of some of the “more-inspiring schools out there.”

Here’s the college’s entry:

5. Augsburg College

Augsburg College in Minneapolis earned the a 2010 President’s Higher Education Community Service Honor Roll nod for its unique approach to bettering the world. Its coursework routinely incorporates projects and ships students out into the community, and the Campus Kitchen serves over 2,000 meals yearly to low-income individuals and families. The Bonner Leaders Program boasts 40 student participants from a wide range of backgrounds and experiences, all of whom band together in long-term projects shaping local, national and international policies.
