Bonner Office of Community Service and Student Development:
Where Women Enter to Learn and Exit to Serve
Dedicated to Spelman College in 2004, the Bonner Office of Community Service and Student Development is a product of the merge of the Office of Community Service and the Bonner Scholars Program. At Spelman, faculty and staff strive to cultivate students who possess a sense of civic consciousness that provokes catalytic change in society.
Through the Community Scholars, Campus Wide Service Initiatives, and Leadership Development programs, BOCSSD enables students to explore and enhance their experiences in the areas of scholarship, civic engagement and leadership:
Spelman Community Scholars have the unique opportunity of integrating their academics with their commitment to the community. Whether through the Bonner Scholars Program or the UPS Scholars Program, students will encounter experiences that will shape their identities and ideals about the world they live in, and provide them with skills to make a difference in our communities.
Bonner Scholars Program
The Bonner Scholars Program provides a service-learning scholarship for students who have high financial need and a commitment to service. The program is designed to heighten the overall education a Scholar receives by engaging students in ongoing service work and helping them develop the tools and the knowledge necessary to make their experience meaningful and lasting.
UPS Scholars Program
Unique among scholarship programs, The UPS Foundation’s Community Service Scholars Program encourages students to be leaders at school and in the community. During an academic year, UPS Scholars perform 300 hours of service.
Campus-wide Service Initiatives
The Super Service Series is a campus-wide initiative that enables students, faculty and staff to participate in civic engagements throughout the metropolitan area of Atlanta on weekends. For each event, a student organization sponsors the event by recruiting the Spelman community, advocating the cause of the nonprofit and serving as student leaders at the event.
The Civic Engagement Fellows Program supports the education of students who have an interest and commitment to engage in sustained social change efforts. Civic engagement is defined as “to participate intentionally as a citizen in the democratic process, actively engaging in public policy and direct service.” Selected participants (20-25 students) meet on Wednesdays for eight consecutive weeks from 5:30 p.m. – 8 p.m. in a boardroom/classroom setting.
- To promote civic engagement
- To promote a civically engaged campus
- To prepare students for career options within the nonprofit sector
