An anchor for academic centers
The success of Bucknell’s academic centers depends on strong, steady leadership. A directorship endowed in perpetuity provides the stability a young center needs to grow and thrive.
Whether an academic center has a dedicated bricks-and-mortar location or is simply a group of faculty and students from diverse disciplines working to achieve shared academic goals, an endowed directorship energizes and anchors our efforts.
All of our existing centers will benefit from the permanent leadership an endowed directorship provides. They include:
