What is the Bonner Foundation?
The motto "Access to Education, Opportunity to Serve" distills the overarching goal of the Bonner Program. Since 1990, a diverse, multi-state consortium of participating colleges and universities have been joined through a common commitment to the Corella and Bertram F. Bonner Foundation’s mission to “transform students, communities, and campuses through service.” The Bonner Program is designed to transform not only the students who are directly supported by the program, but also the campus and community in which they serve and learn. The goals of the Bonner Program are identified in four areas: student development, community involvement, campus engagement, and higher education.
What is a Bonner Leader? How do I become one?
Bonner Leaders are civically engaged and community focused student leaders at Stockton. They receive a stipend for serving 8-10 hours per week, often as part of Federal Work Study funds. They focus on specific issue areas, such as hunger and homelessness, literacy and learning, environmental justice, political engagement, or health and wellness. They often partner with a community organization who is also focused on these issues, serving at that location for some of their weekly hours. They consider on and off campus solutions to the issue they are most interested in, and organize students through service-learning classes, clubs and organizations to be part of the solution. Bonner Leaders are part of a national cohort of Bonner Leaders and Scholars, supported through The Bonner Foundation, based in Princeton, NJ. There is an application process to become a Bonner Leader, and any Stockton student interested in social justice and becoming an agent of change is welcome to apply.
