Bonner Center

The Bonner Center for Service Learning and Civic Engagement at Carson-Newman University prepares future-minded servant leaders committed to building and sustaining a caring community through integration of academic excellence and community engagement. Our programs encourage students to live the values of Carson-Newman University through courageous pursuit of social justice, truth, beauty, and goodness.

We build a strong culture of community engagement; We strengthen engaged scholarship by faculty and students; We foster collaborative and sustained partnerships between the University and the community; We advocate sustainable social justice solutions to community challenges. 




The Bonner Center's programs are changing lives. See Randall Nored's Story below.
