Presentations of Learning

For years, Presentations of Learning (POLs) have been a Bonner Center for Civic Engagement tradition for graduating Bonner Scholars. POLs provide engaged learners an opportunity to share the impact of community engagement on their learning, growth, and development.

As our Bonner Program celebrates its graduates each spring, we mark how students have made a lasting difference on campus and in the community. We want to acknowledge the Class of 2020, and champion the hard work they have committed to over the last four years. While individual and collective impacts cannot fully be measured with just data or words, we want to share a few highlights from the Class of 2020 that stand out to us.

  • The Class of 2020 has served in a variety of fields including: Arts & Culture, Education, Health Care, Immigration and Resettlement, and Public Policy.
  • 50% of this class has traveled abroad to study and/or serve.
  • Over half studied some form of science, with 20% majoring in Biology.
  • Another 20% are Leadership Studies majors.
  • 32% of our graduating class double majored.
  • 100% made an incredible impact — together, they served and engaged for roughly 29,000 hours!

None of us could have predicted how this semester has gone, and we are grateful for the flexibility, patience, and the outpouring of Bonner Love shown to our community partners and the Bonner community. While our community cannot all gather together to close out the semester, we hope that you will join us in celebrating the accomplishments of the senior Bonners virtually on this website.

Presentations of Learning are organized according to issue area, and can be accessed using the tabs on the left navigation column.
