Mars Hill College


Congress Reps for 2011-2012

What's Your Big Idea Category? (please bold which one)

- Student Leadership & Development

- Community Partnerships & Impact

- Campus Culture & Coordination

- Policy & Change Campaigns 




In 400 words or less, please describe your Big Idea. What is it and why have you decided to work on it this year? How may it strengthen your program, campus, and/or community?





In 400 words or less, please describe your strategy. The following questions should draw out the tools, resources, and support you are using to promote and achieve your Big Idea. You'll have a chance to flesh out your plan, but here is a chance to get the basics down: 


The BLT has selected two representatives from every class along with the two Bonner Congress representatives, as well as the Bonner Coordinator and Lifeworks staff, to commit to helping achieve this Big Idea.  We hope to get community partners, other students on campus, faculty members, and administration to be involved during different aspects of the year as we coordinate events, service projects, and seminars.  Chartwells plays a big role in aiding us to achieve this idea, as they have a lot of connections with the community farmers, families, and campus students and faculty.  By the end of this year we would like to accomplish completing a successful local food night, hunger week, and project clean plate.


  • Which Bonner staff on your campus has committed to helping you achieve this Big Idea?
  • Who's on your team? Please share how you may be involving:
    • fellow Bonners
    • other students on campus
    • community partners
    • faculty members
    • administration
  • What resources will you leverage to help you achieve your Big Idea? 
  • What three things will you accomplish by the end of this academic year (think SLI 2012)? 




Please draft some of your benchmark goals into the framework below:


  • Bonner Congress October 7-9, 2011:
  • Local Food Night: October/November
  • Fundraiser for Hunger: Spring 2012
  • Hunger Relief Seminar: February
  • Hunger Week: Mid April 




A good Big Idea proposal is one that connects with broader goals you may have for your program, campus, or community. Please answer the questions below, which should help you think through those larger themes.


  • What will be different in 2014 as a result of your Big Idea (thinking in a 3-year strategic plan)?


 How might your plan affect some of the issues and ideas seen in the Think 2040 video?
