Through our J-term Course, Bonner Community Scholars work with longer-term partnerships the Civic Engagement Center has established across the New Orleans metropolitan area.  In addition to our community-based projects, Bonners engage in discussions and complete course readings designed to facilitate learning and reflection on topics related to civic engagement, social change and community resiliency through the themes of Education, Community and Cultural Survival.  The course also invites students into collaborative engagement with schools, neighborhoods and communities, encouraging them to become active participants in the challenging conversations that engage New Orleans and so many cities in North America and across the globe.
