Who Cares?
We do. San Francisco State's civic engagement and service learning programs are detailed in the newly released "Colleges with a Conscience: 81 Great Schools With Outstanding Community Involvement" (Random House/Princeton Review Books). Geared toward prospective students, the book is a guide to the nation's most socially responsible colleges.

Selected by the Princeton Review and Campus Compact, the 81 colleges, including neighbors Stanford and the University of California, Berkeley, were praised as having "both an administration committed to social responsibility and a student body actively engaged in serving society. Education at these schools isn't only about private gain: it's about public good."

SFSU was singled out as having one of the largest community-service learning programs in the nation. During the 2003–04 school year more than 7,000 SFSU students conducted volunteer work as part of their studies.

The book points out that SFSU is also unique in its public acknowledgement of service: Students earn an extra course unit when they enroll in community-service learning classes, and their volunteer hours are listed on their official transcripts.
