Beyond outstanding education and research, Central offers small classes taught by first-rate professors who value learning above all else. Central is home to a vibrant student community that supports diversity and nurtures interaction and involvement.

MORE ABOUT US (our partners, trips, structure, best or unique practices)

As part of your Annual Report 2008, we ask all campuses to add 1-2 paragraphs here that describe a few highlights of the programmatic activities from this year.  For instance, you may choose to capture an aspect of a very successful trip or a campus-wide service initiatives.  Or you may describe some key work you did with community partners, or your efforts to incorporate community-based research with faculty.  As part of your larger Campus Profile, these few paragraphs should provide a sense of elements that are particularly strong and/or unique about your Bonner Program.  You can delete this instruction text when you are done.
