To provide all students with extra support and communication during the 2020-21 academic year, Bucknell has launched a new initiative called "My Herd" — microcommunities that focus on group accountability and health monitoring.
Every Bucknell student, whether on campus or remote, will be placed in a "herd" — a small group of about 10 students composed of peers from each class year. Each herd will be supported by a staff or faculty leader.
Herds will connect frequently, whether in person or remotely. Herds are designed to:
- Encourage personal accountability
- Foster consistent, caring communication
- Promote community development through the COVID-19 pandemic
