Diversity, Equity, & Inclusion Vision

Diversity is one of Bucknell's core values. In developing and nurturing a diverse and inclusive community, we respect and engage across difference. We face and respond thoughtfully to difficult questions. We build bridges and establish relationships. Individually and collectively we critically examine and challenge our biases, assumptions, institutional structures and worldviews. We understand and seek to mitigate inequities, and grow-intellectually and personally-through meaningful diversity experiences.

Diversity, Equity, & Inclusion Statement

Bucknell University's diversity efforts broaden and deepen our personal and intellectual horizons, preparing all of us as students, staff and faculty to make thoughtful, responsible contributions as individuals, community members and professionals in a diverse, globally integrated world.

An essential component of Bucknell's commitment to academic excellence is our commitment to fostering an inclusive, diverse campus community. Bucknell's understanding of diversity is broad-based, emphasizing the identity and experiences of groups that have been historically underrepresented in higher education, and encompassing age, class, culture, (dis)ability, ethnicity, gender identity, gender expression, immigration status, national origin, race, religion and spirituality, sex and sexual identity, among others. We affirm that diverse experiences and perspectives in the classroom and across campus enhance everyone's educational experience.
