The Bucknell Forum
Freedom of Expression
Since 2007, the Bucknell Forum has brought national leaders, scholars and commentators to Bucknell to examine important issues from multidisciplinary and diverse viewpoints. Past Forum speakers have included former U.S. Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice, famed primatologist Jane Goodall and CNN broadcast journalists Anderson Cooper and Jake Tapper, among others.
The 2023-24 Bucknell Forum will discuss the theme “Freedom of Expression” and feature speakers from a range of political and idealogical backgrounds who have encountered freedom of expression in their personal and professional experiences.
All Bucknell Forum events are free and open to the public.
Tickets are required for events held in the Weis Center for the Performing Arts. Events held in Trout Auditorium do not require tickets.
Current Bucknell students and employees may receive up to two free tickets at any Campus Box Office location, or online, between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m., beginning one day prior to the event. A valid Bucknell University ID is required to receive advance tickets. Use of multiple Bucknell IDs to pick up additional sets of tickets is prohibited.
Remaining tickets will be available for the general public at the Weis Center box office beginning at 6 p.m. on the day of the event. All individuals may receive up to two free tickets, depending on availability.
