Senior Presentation of Learning

Senior Presentations of Learning (POL) is process and event for Bonners to reflect on their service experiences and to articulate personal transformations brought about by participation in the Bonner Program while anticipating their place in the world after graduation.

To prepare for the POL, students meaningfully synthesize their individual experiences on a broader scale in order to communicate the combination of personal, cultural, social, political and educational shifts that occur as results of the Bonner journey. Where possible, students are asked to make connections with their academic coursework and vocational trajectories. 

Senior Presentations of Learning serve as a testament to the work of Bonners and the important power of change that service engenders.  Additionally, the insights of seniors often inspire their fellow Bonners and a variety of stakeholders both on campus and in the community. 

Include a few examples from Sewanee’s Digital Stories.
