President John Bravman, faculty members and the Board of Trustees have identified six strategic academic and residential learning priorities. Together, these initiatives will transform the world of learning and growth our students experience and prepare them for the lives Bucknell alumni have always sought – lives filled with action, achievement and fulfillment.
- The Creative Campus Initiative
To prepare Bucknellians to solve global challenges, we must foster creative thinking that turns inspiration into innovation and imagination into action.
- The Global Learning Initiative
The success of the Global Learning Initiative will make Bucknell a truly global institution – a portal through which our students engage the world, and a magnet for students, scholars and research and program partners from every destination.
- The Human Health Initiative
A new and groundbreaking partnership with nearby Geisinger Health System (GHS), a national leader in healthcare delivery and research, gives Bucknell the potential to become a global draw for students and scholars interested in the health sciences.
- The Management Education Initiative
Today, the School of Management, formally established in 2008, stands poised to enhance further Bucknell’s structure as an educator of tomorrow’s business leaders.
- The Residential Learning Initiative
Our students come together to live, learn, work and become better people in this classic college setting. Bucknellians are achievers, yet exceptionally driven to achieve together.
- The Sustainability Initiative
Organizations around the world are embracing sustainability as a core principle of 21st-century thinking. The questions it invokes go to the heart of Bucknell’s mission and call for expertise in fields in which we excel or have special resources.
