LEWISBURG, Pa. — The Rev. Timothy Dugan is serving as Bucknell's  interim university chaplain. Dugan began his duties Aug. 22.

Dugan was most recently chaplain at Geisinger Medical Center in Danville, where he offered spiritual care to patients and families in the Level One Trauma Center. In addition, he collaborated with interdisciplinary health-care team members and served as leader at educational events and remembrance services for the community.

He also has served as pastor of the Salem United Church of Christ in Doylestown and associate pastor with the Good Shepherd United Church of Christ in Boyertown.

A graduate of Kutztown University, Dugan holds a Master of Divinity degree from Lancaster Theological Seminary and a Doctor of Ministry in Preaching degree from Chicago Theological Seminary.

Appointed to the United Church of Christ Historical Council and the Lancaster Seminary President's Council for Faculty and Staff Diversity, Dugan has served as assistant to the Lancaster Seminary director of admissions and assistant to the Kutztown University dean of fine arts.

"Rev. Dugan brings a wealth of spiritual and educational experience to this position," said Susan Hopp, dean of students at Bucknell. "We welcome him to the University community."

Dugan replaces the Rev. Ian Oliver, who in July began serving as pastor of the University Church and senior associate university chaplain for Protestant Life at Yale University after serving as Bucknell's university chaplain for 12 years.
