A 60-day public comment Notice was published in the Federal Register on December 6, 2006. This comment period ended February 5, 2007. No comments were received. However, the Honor Roll's proposed new special focus area, college readiness services for underachieving disadvantaged youth, which was discussed in the earlier Notice, has received very positive support at several higher education community conferences over the last few months.
Description: The President's Higher Education Community Service Honor Roll and Awards program supports the President's Call to Service, the First Lady's Helping America's Youth initiative, and the Corporation's strategic goals, especially the goal of significantly increasing community service by college students. The Application for the President's Higher Education Community Service Honor Roll collects information from institutions of higher education about student community service activities, and—in this second year of the program—will include a special focus on educational and other college readiness services to underachieving youth in disadvantaged circumstances. Data from this application provide the basis for a national honor roll and awards program designed to promote awareness of higher education community service efforts and to inspire expanded and more effective service efforts in the future. This year's deadline for institutions to submit applications is July 31, 2007, based on information for the year ending June 30, 2007. It is expected that a similar application/ information collection activity will be repeated annually, with a similar annual deadline.
