Edgewood College intentionally promotes, supports, and rewards a culture of civic engagement for students, staff, and faculty that is valued by our community partners. The College provides students with multiple opportunities for civic engagement experiences that develop knowledge, skills, and commitments to help students discern how their own interests and gifts intersect with community needs and opportunities (their sense of vocation).
We believe that the Dominican values of truth, compassion, partnership, community, and justice are expressed through civic engagement when we strive to act in ways consistent with the following beliefs:
The mission of the Bonner Leaders Program is to transform the lives of students, the life of their campuses, their local communities, and the world through service and leadership. The Bonner Leaders Program provides a scholarship to students who are committed to community service and learning about social issues and social change. Students selected for this program spend two to four years working with a team of other Edgewood College students on specific community service initiatives and meet regularly as a group to learn about social justice issues, community leadership, and civic engagement.
This program is open to incoming freshmen, current freshmen and current sophomore full-time undergraduate students who are committed to community service. Students may participate in the program for up to four years (a minimum commitment of two years is expected).
Rewards: Scholarship, education and training on social issues, potential to connect service and education work and develop a network within the local community
