The Bonner Foundation is a nationally renowned organization that fosters community engaged learning on college campuses. The College of New Jersey is privileged to have a partnership with this extraordinary organization. The Bonner Center at TCNJ focuses on learning through community service—we call it community engaged learning. As a Summer Bonner Fellow, students learn and serve with college students from one of the best “domestic peace corps” programs in the country. They live on one of the most beautiful campuses in the region, have the option to earn four college credits, meet like-minded students, as well as build their service portfolio for high school graduation requirements or college applications.
