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?


Our Big Idea involves engaging our campus further in community service and the tracking of the hours of said service. We would like to rebrand and market our non-Bonner community service hours tracking system, TigerPoints, in hopes of increasing the percentage of student body using the site. We would like have at least 50% of our campus registered on this system. Through this site, we will be able to better recruit non-Bonners for our service projects and events.



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: 


  • Which Bonner staff on your campus has committed to helping you achieve this Big Idea?
    • Tony Rocker - program coordinator
    • Jackie Dugger - Administrative Assistant  
  • Who's on your team? Please share how you may be involving:
    • fellow Bonners
    • other students on campus
      • Miss Bonner Office of Community Service and her court  
    • faculty members
      • Service Learning teachers 
    • administration
      • Greek Life Officials
      • Office of Student Life
      • Office of Student Conduct 
  • 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)?      
    • Register 50% of campus
    • Better record campus community engagement
    • Increase volunteers at community sites 




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


  • Bonner Congress October 7-9, 2011: Further flesh out plan
  • MLK Day January 16, 2012: Have marketing already out; test usage of site with King Day of Service
  • IMPACT Conference late March 2012:
  • SLI June 4-7, 2012: 




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)?
    • This plan will allow us to better hold our campus community accountable for the service we all say that we do. This system will allow us to more accurately report the service.  
  • How might your plan affect some of the issues and ideas seen in the Think 2040 video?
