BCSE Programs

The Bucknell Center for Sustainability & the Environment's mission takes a tangible form through our various programs. Through project funding, logistical support and multidisciplinary expertise, these programs help us better understand, revitalize and protect the world around us.

The Sustainable Technology Program, Watershed Sciences & Engineering Program and Place Studies program create opportunities for students, faculty and staff to engage in interdisciplinary work that makes a real impact.

Watershed Sciences & Engineering Program

Bucknell makes the most of our proximity to the majestic Susquehanna River through the Watershed Sciences & Engineering Program.

By taking the classroom outdoors, Bucknell connects people to the river and builds upon our existing strengths in science and engineering. Faculty, staff and students partner with local, state and federal organizations on watershed research, stewardship and conservation projects. The Watershed Sciences & Engineering Program consists of 14 field stations throughout the Susquehanna Region and beyond.

Place Studies Program

Working in collaboration with faculty, students and staff from across the humanities, social sciences and management, the Place Studies Program develops teaching, research and outreach projects.

These opportunities allow faculty and students to actively engage with the social, political, historical and cultural dimensions of nature-society relationships and sustainability, related to how we imagine, understand and engage with “place”.
