The Bonner Program | Common Commitments
The Common Commitments were written and decided upon by Bonner students - the Bonner Congress Representatives - who continue to ensure their integration in their campus programs. These common commitments play a key role in uniting Bonners all over the nation of diverse passions and interests in making change. These commitments are crucial for making us a coherent community. We believe that all Bonners are committed to:
We respect and embrace the many dimensions of diversity in our private and public lives.
We advocate for fairness, impartiality, and equality while addressing systemic social and environmental issues.
We develop international understanding that enables us to participate successfully in a global society.
We explore personal belief while respecting the spiritual practices of others.
We participate intentionally as a citizen in the democratic process, actively engaging in public policy and direct service.
We establish and sustain a vibrant community of place, personal relationships, and common interests.
