Committed to the belief that an education includes both fostering students' intellectual growth and developing them into socially responsible citizens, President Harris created the Presidential Service Corps (PSC) program in 2002.
Since then, the PSC has grown to include up to 60 students per year. In 2007, the Presidential Service Corps partnered with the Corella and Bertram F. Bonner Foundation to further develop student civic leaders at Widener University and form the Presidential Service Corps/Bonner Leader Program (PSC/Bonner).
Students in the PSC/Bonner Leader program commit to serving 300 hours of community service per year in the city of Chester. In addition, students participate in training and enrichment activities that help them develop skills that propel them along the Bonner Foundation Student Developmental Model. All 60 PSC/Bonner Leaders receive an annual $5,000 award in addition to any need-based financial aid or academic-based scholarships.
The epitome of our core values in action, the PSC/Bonner Leaders are a distinguished group of students who live, learn, and work together, devoting themselves to responsible citizenship and inspiring others to do the same.
