For the second straight year, St. John’s has been named to the President’s Higher Education Community Service Honor Roll, the highest federal recognition a college or university can receive for its commitment to volunteering, service-learning and civic engagement.

In related developments St. John’s celebrated the graduation of the first classes in the Advantage Academy and Ozanam Scholars Program during a special ceremony at the D’Angelo Center. Both programs are successful outgrowths of VISA an initiative designed to more visibly embed St. John’s Catholic and Vincentian mission into the educational experience of its students.
