Bucknell Center for Sustainability & the Environment

River shot- Downtown Lewisburg

At Bucknell, we transform our world by finding creative solutions to the most pressing issues facing our society. The Bucknell Center for Sustainability & the Environment confronts one of the biggest challenges of them all — the sustainability of our society and our planet — by investigating our impact and exploring our connections to the environment around us.

We put our passion for the environment into action by enabling collaborative scholarship from across the University and empowering our students to become innovators in service of the common good.

    Make Your Campus More Sustainable

    Bucknell's student Renewable Energy Scholars don't just dream about a more sustainable tomorrow. We make it happen, today. We've helped bring a zero-impact, "living" greenhouse to explore innovative sustainable technologies, made our campus shuttle more efficient and reduced our waste and carbon footprints by increasing recycling among students. How will you make Bucknell more sustainable?
