    Hamline University was named to the 2015 President's Higher Education Community Service Honor Roll, the highest federal recognition that an institution can receive for its commitment to community, service-learning, and civic engagement. Hamline is the only institution in the state of Minnesota that was recognized in all four honor roll categories.

    The bread oven at the Hamline Church was featured in a video by the United Methodist Church showing how it builds community in the Hamline-Midway neighborhood.
