Bonner Leaders

The Bonner Leader Program transforms students to have vital roles in society for nurturing and mobilizing thoughtful, caring, and diverse leadership dedicated to community service. At the core, Bonners believe in educating the whole person, and that learning occurs in multiple contexts and developmentally over time. Bonner Leaders engage in community building, gain leadership skills, learn professionalism, and develop practical skills.
