What You’ll Do
Through design thinking workshops and small-group activities, you'll develop a strategic mindset for problem-solving. Get results in real time as you engage with local businesses to help them develop innovative solutions to real-world challenges. Your journey will be guided by the mentorship of alumni, faculty, staff and upperclass student leaders. Learn valuable skills that will enhance your studies in any field, and build relationships you'll draw upon again and again throughout your years at Bucknell.
You'll also enjoy outings to favorite local spots with your new classmates. Typical off-campus trips include team-building ropes course exercises, an afternoon at Knoebels Amusement Resort and ice cream runs to the Freez — a Lewisburg tradition.
Whom It’s For
Students of all academic interests are welcome to join Design Thinking Leadership, and no experience in entrepreneurship or design is necessary. You only need to be interested in connecting with like-minded students, learning valuable new ways of thinking and having fun. Capacity is limited to 30 people.
