The Stephen W. Taylor Medal is presented upon the recommendation of the president of the University, with the concurrence of the Executive Committee of the Board of Trustees. The award, named after Stephen W. Taylor, a Bucknell founder who framed its charter, organized its first course of study, and planned the campus, represents the most significant honor granted by Bucknell. In large measure, the University has been built on Taylor’s initiative and vision.
