"For the second year in a row, St. Ambrose University has been honored nationally for helping its students engage in community service projects.
"The private Catholic university in Davenport was one of nearly 650 colleges and universities included on the 2010 President's Higher Education Community Service Honor Roll, commended by President Barack Obama for supporting volunteerism, service-learning and civic engagement.
"This is the highest federal recognition a college or university can receive for its commitment to community service, according to the Corporation for National and Community Service, which has administered the honor roll since 2006.
"'It's a part of our mission, and actually, it has been from the very beginning," the Rev. Chuck Adam, campus ministry director and chaplain at St. Ambrose University, said as he talked about the school's Catholic mission of teaching students about 'loving God and loving neighbor.'"
