USF Bestowed National Community Service Honor

April 09, 2009

The University of San Francisco earned placement on the 2008 Corporation for National and Community Service (CNCS) President's Honor Roll for Community Service, with distinction, in part due to law school centers and programs.

The award recognizes universities nationwide that support innovative and effective community service programs. The USF School of Law Center for Law and Global Justice and Street Law Project were presented to the CNCS as examples of university programs that meet honor criteria.

The Center for Law and Global Justice works in a multi-disciplinary environment on rule of law projects, such as the project to end juvenile life without parole sentences and the Keta Taylor Colby Death Penalty Project. The center has worked in countries throughout the world, including Cambodia, China, the Dominican Republic, India, and Vietnam. The Street Law Project sends USF School of Law students to inner-city schools to serve as teachers and role models.

The University of San Francisco has received recognition by CNCS every year since the honor roll was launched in 2006, and is one of only 19 schools to be recognized with distinction every year since the program's inception.
