  7. 7. Sample Expectations The Bonner Program is rooted in relationship – whether it’s peer-to-peer or out in the community. Bonner is not just about completing hours and your commitment to the program should reflect that. Bonner Scholars are expected to: • Engage in dialogue and activities during class meetings and retreats • Demonstrate respect for the opinions and cultures of others • Ask questions when you need help and meet with Bonner staff in a timely manner about any issues or concerns • Meet deadlines for documentation, including CLAs and hour logs • Support and encourage fellow Bonners
  8. 8. Enforced Policies CLAsshould be turned in within one week of starting their site.   Weekly/Monthly Hour Logs: Students should be expected to complete an average weekly and monthly total of hours. If students fall behind this guideline, you should ask to meet with them. Policies for Late/Missing Hour Logs: Have a written policy for handling students who submit late or missing hours.  
  9. 9. Training and Logging Hours Train students to write effective CLAs (or update their positions) and use BWBRS.  This should take place at the beginning of the program/semester.  Some do it during Orientation, but it is helpful to do it when the student can actually log on! Use “Making CLA’s Great” and the sample one-pagers Students should be asked to log hours on a consistent basis — weekly!  This will get students in a habit of logging hours and will start a productive pattern.
