Humanics Wins National Award

January 30, 2007

Lindenwood University’s American Humanics program received the Points of Light Foundation Excellence in Community Service and Volunteerism Award at the American Humanics Management Institute, held January 3-6 in Washington, DC.

The Excellence in Community Service and Volunteerism Award is given to the American Humanics college program that has most effectively demonstrated its commitment to community service and volunteerism. Lindenwood University’s program was selected among 74 American Humanics programs throughout the United States.

“I am obviously very proud of our students and their commitment to the community,” said Jack Beckerle, faculty advisor for the Lindenwood American Humanics group, “and although this award recognizes their efforts, the national recognition by the ‘Points of Light Foundation’ also means a lot to our Nonprofit Administration Degree Program and our American Humanics program at Lindenwood.”

The purpose of the annual management institute is to expose junior- and senior-level college students to experiences they will encounter as nonprofit professionals. This symposium is considered the capstone professional development experience for students enrolled in the American Humanics nonprofit management and leadership program. It is held annually during the first week in January and rotates to a different city each year.

American Humanics is a national alliance of colleges, universities, and nonprofit organizations that prepares and certifies college students for professional careers in youth and human service agencies. American Humanics is affiliated with more than 70 colleges and universities nationwide and partners with more than 50 national nonprofit organizations, including the YMCA, the March of Dimes, and the Boy Scouts of America.
