An article published on February 25 praised Gettysburg College's Center for Public Service for the work it does around Adams County. The article also mentioned how, thanks in part to the efforts of CPS, the College was a Presidential Awardee in the President's Higher Education Community Service Honor Roll in 2013.
From the Gettysburg Times:
Since 1991, the College's Center for Public Service (CPS) has engaged the campus with the greater Adams County community for social change. This award focused on the College's partnership work in three major areas: food justice, immigrant families, and K-12 education. The College's students, faculty, and local community members have worked together on these issues to create systemic change through dialogue, research, education, direct action, policy and coalition building. Partnership is at the core, with all involved defining our shared work and goals.
