As colleges across the country honor their graduates this commencement season, the Corporation for National and Community Service (CNCS) honored Pepperdine University as a leader among institutions of higher education for their support of volunteering, service-learning, and civic engagement. Pepperdine University was admitted to the 2010 President’s Higher Education Community Service Honor Roll with distinction for its strong institutional commitment to service and compelling campus-community partnerships that produce measurable results for the community.

Of that total, 511 were named to the Honor Roll, 114 received the recognition of Honor Roll with distinction, 11 were identified as finalists, and six received the Presidential Award.
