Multicultural Opportunities and Programs
Bucknell University is an institution that celebrates cultures through both extracurricular activities and the classroom. Diversity is presented as a pillar in The Plan for Bucknell.
This allows the Bucknell community to advance our educational opportunities to learn about different cultures, build cultural competencies and truly become citizens of the 21st century. These goals are included in the very academic fabric that puts Bucknell in the forefront of liberal arts institutions.
MSS Ambassadors are a select group of student volunteers who represent the Office of Multicultural Student Services (MSS) at events focused on attracting prospective students from underrepresented groups to Bucknell.
