Faculty/Staff Spirit of Service Award Nominations Now Open

The Faculty/Staff Spirit of Service Award recognizes a Fresno State faculty or staff member who has excelled in service to the community outside of their job duties. The award may be presented annually should an appropriate honoree be identified. Self-nominations are accepted. Applications are due by March 15, 2019 at 5:00 PM.  

Breaking Records 

We are so pleased to report that this past academic year (2017-18), 18,135 students, faculty, and staff members provided 1,436,069 hours of service to the community--a new annual record--which is equal to an estimated economic value of nearly $40.2 Million. This is an increase of about 50,000 hours of service from previous year.

The services provided range from short-term activities like blood-drives with the Central California Blood Center and Kids Day benefiting Valley Children's Hospital to nearly 200 service-learning courses and long-term teaching internships with local school districts.

Fresno State's commitment to service contributed to Washington Monthly ranking the university as number 24 of the top 30 universities in the nation last year. In fact, Fresno State was ranked second in the percentage of work study allocated to community service placements.
