Carnegie Foundation Community Engagement Classification (2008-2025)

Washington State University has been honored by the Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching with a renewal of the Community Engagement Classification for a ten year term.

To earn this honor, universities must demonstrate a wide range of mutually beneficial partnerships with communities. For this term, only 240 US colleges and universities were selected for classification. WSU has held this prestigious classification since 2008.

National President's Higher Education Community Service Honor Roll

The President’s Higher Education Honor Roll is the highest honor a college or university can receive for its commitment to student civic engagement and community service. The award is presented by the US Corporation for National and Community Service, the same organization that runs the AmeriCorps program, and the President of the United States.

This annual award began in 2006, and the CCE has been on the honor roll every year they have applied, which includes awards in 2008, 2010, 2012, 2013, and 2014. Honor roll lists for these years are available below.
