Bucknell and the Civil Rights Movement

The Bucknell Civil Rights Project on Omeka a collection of Bucknell's records from the Civil Rights era. It provides documentation of civil rights issues at Bucknell, Bucknell's NAACP chapter and scholarship opportunities for black students, information on African American speakers that visited the University, materials on exchange programs Bucknell participated in with historically black universities, the University's ongoing attempt to increase diversity, and the difficulties that black students at a predominantly white university during this time period often faced.

Multicultural Female Playwrights

"This idea came out of a very simple concept: diversifying the arts. I took two courses with Professor Meenakshi Ponnuswami, and I fell in love with the idea of having female role models within the theatre. ...The goal of this project is to provide all theatre admirers, dramatic literature fanatics, aspiring directors or actresses, and future English or theatre majors at this institution with some reading material that may not be comforting but will change their lives." -- Yulissa Hidalgo '12 (double major in theatre and women's & gender studies with a minor in creative writing)
