The Engaged Bucknell Initiative
Bucknell is engaged. Engaged in community. Engaged in justice. Engaged in global citizenship. Engaged in fostering leaders that are sensitive to the moral and ethical dimensions of life.
Education at Bucknell is about doing. Programs across the University get students out of the classroom and engaged with non-profits, government agencies, farms, volunteer efforts and more — both in our local Susquehanna River Valley and around the world. Engaged Bucknell provides the infrastructure and resources to bring together students, faculty and staff with external partners to engage communities in meaningful ways.
Whether it's tutoring with local schools, collecting data used by non-profits in their operations, digital storytelling, developing marketing and strategic plans for regional organizations, addressing food insecurity, collecting and curating oral histories, or developing new applied precision agriculture conservation techniques, Bucknell is engaged.
