Exploration has begun on a promising campus development idea: an Integrated Riverfront Environmental Center. While many questions remain, this exciting idea would allow us to truly connect our University to the river, and all its meaning for learning, recreation and Bucknell’s distinctive campus offerings.
Already, faculty and students in numerous disciplines are capitalizing on our river proximity to create and explore a trove of educational and research possibilities. From their successful efforts to have the river formally designated a part of America’s historic water heritage, to scholarship that has helped struggling riverfront communities, to the recreational pleasures of kayaking and fishing, our campus community knows the river practically as part of our campus itself. But we have barely begun to make the most of this potential.
We own approximately 900 feet of property along the Susquehanna River. Most of this space is currently occupied by maintenance facilities. Imagine how this space could be transformed into a resource for students, faculty and community members.
