“Be the change that you wish to see in the world,” said Mahatma Gandhi, and Manchester University lives the change – even on winter breaks, during the summer and between classes.
That dedication to service puts it in the national spotlight once again: For the eighth straight year, Manchester is on the President’s Higher Education Community Service Honor Roll. It is also on the Interfaith Community Service Honor Roll.
The President’s Honor Roll recognizes higher education institutions whose community service efforts achieve meaningful outcomes in their communities, according to the announcement released Monday.
Manchester University has a long reputation for its many service projects and volunteer opportunities. These programs include volunteer projects at Camp Mack, American Red Cross blood drives, Hunger and Homelessness Awareness Week and the Indiana Reading Corps.
Commitment to making the world a better place is part of the Manchester Mission. Last year, its students contributed more than 49,000 hours to their communities, their churches, their country and nations around the world.
The MU Center for Service Opportunities, which also coordinates Manchester’s engagement in Pathways summer service programs and the interfaith North Manchester Community Dinners, provides a service-opportunity network for students, faculty and employees. Director of the Center is Carole Miller-Patrick, who spoke this fall at a White House conference about interfaith programming that works.
