Since its founding, the University Press has been an arts institution at Bucknell, encouraging and supporting the scholarly work of both our local faculty and of distinguished scholars beyond the University.

The University Press was founded at Bucknell in 1968. Since its inception, it has been editorially independent, an organization run by its Directors, its Editorial Board, and its staff. The University Press presently receives approximately 400 serious proposals and inquiries every year and, of those, considers approximately 70 manuscripts for publication from authors all over the world. From this selective pool, the Press publishes an average of 38 books per annum.

While the editorial operations of the University Press are supported and funded by the Office of the Provost & Vice President for Academic Affairs at Bucknell, Rowman & Littlefield Publishing Group are responsible for the production and distribution of our books. Contracts for accepted manuscripts are issued by Rowman & Littlefield Publishing Group.
