The Old Dominion University Community Service Award

The Old Dominion University Community Service Award is presented in recognition of the contributions of faculty, staff and student leaders to service in communities in Hampton Roads and elsewhere. Importantly, in keeping with the national and international aspect of the University's mission, the award not only recognizes service on campus and in Hampton Roads, but anywhere a University employee or student is helping to improve community welfare.
