Central College

Pella — On Tuesday, at least 700 members of the campus community—students, faculty and staff—volunteered their time on 80 service projects in 13 zip codes around central Iowa.

Central College is committed to service and service-learning in conjunction with more than 90 community partners. The college was recently named a finalist on The President’s Higher Education Community Service Honor Roll for its work in Iowa’s most distressed communities. In the 2010-2011 academic year, Central College students completed 60,598 hours of service. Doane says the college is on track to beat that number this year.
