At Bucknell, sustainability isn't just something we study — although we are advancing our understanding of sustainability in disciplines from civil engineering to finance to philosophy. It's something we do.
Sustainability at Bucknell encompasses both principles and practices, at scales from local to global, that protect, maintain and increase the long-term viability and resilience of our environmental, social and economic support systems, so that we can create a more just, equitable and abundant future.
This definition informs our journey roadmap as a local-to-global sustainability living-learning community in academic majors, research, initiatives, organizations and external outreach. Sustainability involves every Bucknellian — from students, faculty and staff to the Board of Trustees, parents and alumni.
Through it all, we strive for a brighter future for our University, our region and the world.
