The Shepherd Higher Education Consortium on Poverty (SHECP) integrates rigorous academic study and focused direct service to disadvantaged communities and persons, enriching the education of undergraduate and law students in all majors and career paths. The intent of this program is to prepare students for lives aimed at diminishing poverty and enhancing human capability through professional and civic efforts.
Bucknell joined the consortium in 2013, seeking to enhance academic and experiential opportunities that address poverty and social justice. The Shepherd Internship Program (SIP) is an 8-week internship program that places students from member institutions with non-profit and government funded agencies in a variety of human service sectors throughout the United States.
