GREENVILLE, S.C. -

A local university has received the highest honor a college or university can receive for its commitment to volunteering, service-learning and civic engagement.

Furman University was named to the 2013 President's Higher Education Community Service Honor Roll.

Furman's dedication to community service is led by the Heller Service Corps. 

Through Heller Furman students have served the Upstate through organizations such working as camp counselors for special needs kids at Camp Spearhead, serving in free medical clinics, and working with Habitat for Humanity building houses across the Upstate.  In addition, Heller hosts a series of events throughout the year for children, special needs adults, and other community members.

"Furman has a long history of service-learning and believes strongly in preparing our graduates to be active leaders and participants in an ever changing world," said Nancy Cooper, coordinator of volunteer services for Heller Service Corps at Furman.

The President's Higher Education Community Service Honor Roll is administered by U.S. Department of Education and the Department of Housing and Urban Development in collaboration with the Corporation for National Community Service.
