Ally Training

In 2014, Bucknell began offering Ally Training, a sexual violence prevention course for members of our Greek-letter organizations. Opened to all members of the Bucknell Community in Fall 2018, this in-depth, discussion-based experience meets in 90-minute sessions once a week for seven weeks and explores how individuals can empower themselves to create lasting cultural change while at Bucknell, both within their chapter and the greater community.
