2013-2014 Mid-Year Update

Our Inaugural Semester

The Bonner Leaders Program at the University of Houston has had a banner first semester. In August we welcomed our inaugural class—the largest Bonner inaugural class ever. They stepped into an environment in which they are expected to lead, and they have not disappointed.

The mid-year update contains a look at some of their projects and accomplishments. They have accomplished an astonishing amount in just fourteen weeks. They’ve revitalized the campus community garden, started a new recycling program, applied to the Clinton Global Initiative University, and represented our campus at the national Bonner Congress. They’ve also been building their program. Students wrote a constitution, elected a leadership council, and are now engaged in the process of recruiting and selecting next year’s class.
