The Bonner Center provides a range of resources and services to faculty members who wish to create learning opportunities for their students that also address real community needs. These fall within the following categories:
- CEL I FSP Course Development and Approval
- CEL II Course Development and Approval
- TCNJ Student Impact Data
- Links to Service Learning Organizations and Research
- Directories of CEL Classes and Professors
In addition to these, the Center also works with faculty to provide direct service experiences for their students, secure grants and other resources to support their projects, create presentation and publication opportunities, as well as offer training sessions and workshops.
TCNJ faculty are at the heart of the Center’s mission to cultivate the common ground that exists between the College and the needs and interests of the community. And, faculty engagement is on the rise. On a weekly basis a visitor might find professors speaking to first year students before they embark on their CEL (Community Engaged Learning) Day, guiding students as they complete a class-based project to address a local community need, or forming and advising a new student club that will apply professional skills to a developing country.
