BAB (Bonner Advisory Board)      Bonner Foundation money tagged for student projects. Moneys must be requested and approved in advance by an authorizing board of Bonner students.

Campus versus community     We usually refer to everyone at Guilford, from administrators to students, as the “campus” in contrast to the larger surrounding city of many neighborhoods, businesses, organizations, institutions etc, which we refer to as “community”.

Club      In Guilford College culture, the way in which some projects, sites and events are funded.

Cultural competency      A special kind of training about understanding how to live outside your own culture and understand and appreciate other cultures.

Dollars, Talent, Task and Time (budget)      Think about not what you want to do but how you will do it. A budget means who (talent) will do what (task) when (time) with what resources.

Leadership Network      In 2014-2015, nobody works alone.
Resume   In 2014-2015, everybody has to know what skills they're building and how they will describe them on a resume.

Project      A project coordinator oversees a project. A series of planned events bounded by a stated beginning and end, with goals and a budget and a logic model (means of measuring effectiveness and success).

Project Community     Technically, Project Community is a club. Historically, however, it functions as campus-based site dedicated to encouraging Guilfordians to be involved in community service.

Reflection     Reflection is the minimum level of feedback leaders should capture as a way of evaluating progress. It occurs on the individual and team level and asks participants about their views on personal, individual and team performance within the context of a stated mission, goal, action or event. Other forms of feedback include project and site-level evaluations, post-mortem, or after-action.  All feedback must be “fed-back” into the process, individual and collective experience, project or site in order for the team to advance, project to succeed or site to grow.

Resume     As a personal, academic and professional goal, we want you to consider how you connect your community engagement experiences with your resume and portfolio. If you haven’t done so, inform your faculty adviser and other faculty members you work with about your community engagement work. 

Site      A community site is a physical place with regular hours. It represents an on-going relationship between Bonner Center and a host organization or community, neighborhood, etc.  A site coordinator team oversees a site. 

Team      The basic action unit through which community work is accomplished by us. Although students can operate individually (a team of one), we prefer teams that are sustainable and can distribute workloads.

Training      To be on site or part of a project, participants must be prepared. If you're a leader, you will need training (Premester). Leaders will train their team members at CSI (Community Service Institute).
