Advancing a Great Tradition Through Bucknell’s Flagship Residential Learning Model

Our students come together to live, learn, work and become better people in this classic college setting. Bucknellians are achievers, yet exceptionally driven to achieve together. Their collective energy, interests and ambition make this community an inspiring place where lifetime bonds of respect and friendship form.

Bucknell is deeply committed to the ideals of residential education and an evolving co-curriculum suited to the needs of new generations of students. For the last 25 years, our Residential Colleges first-year program has been a standout residential learning model because of our intentional integration of a student’s academic and social development.

Through this initiative, we aspire to develop equally engaging programs for each year of a student’s Bucknell career to fully support their growth and personal development.

Opportunities in the Residential Learning Initiative

We seek donor funding for endowments in support of the Residential College programs. Endowments will enable Bucknell to expand the Residential College experience through curricular innovation and additional opportunities for travel and programming. Field trips and service projects related to each college's residential theme will benefit from additional annual support and provide more students with the chance to participate. Endowed funds will also support curriculum development grants for faculty charged with creating new courses and themes related to each Residential College.
