The Bonner Leaders Program focuses on student development through direct engagement in the community. Bonner Leaders work in the community to address social issues such as education, homelessness, racial justice and poverty. Students attend regular meetings to reflect on their work in the community together. They focus on creating a greater understanding of campus-community collaboration as well as engaging other students in the important work to be done in the community.
Applications for 2016-2017 are being accepted now and are due on March 11, 2016 for students who will be returning to Augsburg in Fall 2016. Apply online through Inside Augsburg, On Campus Student Jobs.
