Community Partners

Bucknell University believes that in addition to their classroom education, students learn by doing. We want to develop educated active citizens who are engaged in the world around them. Individuals and organizations in the local community are valuable resources for our students. At the same time, our learners provide important services to the public and their community.

Connections between Bucknell and the community foster cooperation and allow community representatives to share their perspectives and experiences with young people who desire the opportunity to learn and make a difference.

Our students participate in academically-based service and volunteer work. The services they provide may include one-time group projects, internships, research and data collection, or a short-term project that involves producing a brochure, redesigning a website or hosting an event, for example.

Partner with Us

The first step in registering as a community partner is to complete our Partner Application. This will give us a better idea of what services your organization offers and your current projects.

Find a Community Partner

Local service organizations benefit from the knowledge, creativity and enthusiasm students contribute to a project. The connection with the University and its resources may enable non-profit agencies to increase their visibility and more effectively reach their goals.
