Civic Engagement

119 Bertrand Library

At Bucknell, we help students explore the world outside the classroom. Through community service and service-learning opportunities, students gain a better understanding of the world around them and experience first-hand the issues that affect our local community and communities across the globe.

Bucknell students can volunteer on an individual basis or with a group of friends, join one of our community-service organizations, become active through academic classes, clubs and organizations, sports teams or fraternities and sororities. Participating in community service and service-learning is a great way to give back to the community, share your talents with others and learn valuable skills for life beyond college.
