What is the BPN?

The Bucknell Professional Network (BPN) is the umbrella network which empowers all Bucknellians across industries and disciplines to link up and furthermore strengthen the Bucknell Community. Each specific Bucknell network offers alumni a forum to enhance their professional network and the opportunity to enrich their professional experience through participation in a variety of educational events. Individuals participating in these communities may choose to make an impact or engage with the University in many valuable ways, both on and off campus.
