Under the Dean's supervision, a number of Presidential Honors Scholars make a special commitment to community service by working together on a specific project each week throughout the academic year. For the past four years, members of the group have been involved in tutoring and mentoring children in a community center on the Lower East Side. In addition, members meet on a regular basis to discuss theoretical and practical issues related to service. They have the opportunity to take service-learning courses, and they may be able to develop research opportunities from their experiences. Finally, the Honors Corps leads and participates in University-wide events that focus on service and the development of leadership.
