What it means to
bE a bison
“... the pursuit of athletics in college need not interfere with a fellow’s studies, and if you give a boy a well developed body his brain will get the benefit of it.” — Christy Mathewson, in his book Won in the Ninth, written in 1910
The term “student-athlete” signifies something extraordinary on the campus of Bucknell University. Being a Bison means that you have the rare blend of physical skills along with the drive and passion needed to succeed at the highest level of collegiate athletics. Being a Bison also means that you are a scholar first and foremost. You believe that values associated with Division I athletics, such as time management, leadership, teamwork and grace under pressure, contribute to a well-rounded college experience. At Bucknell, our students, faculty and staff pride themselves as national leaders in upholding the scholar-athlete ideal that balances a challenging academic program with the demands of successful Division I athletics. Being a Bison means that you have pledged to be a student-athlete in the purest sense. In doing so, you will be rewarded for a lifetime. Senior Scott Monfort, a chemical engineering major with a 3.80 GPA, was one of a league-high 22 Bison named to the Patriot League Academic Honor Roll in 2009.

Bucknell Bison Athletics Setting the Standard of Excellence
Bucknell takes great pride in its commitment to excellence on and off the playing fields. From Presidents’ Cups to Academic All-Americans to graduation rates that are ranked annually in the national top-10, Bucknell is clearly at the head of the class when it comes to upholding the scholar-athlete ideal.
With three more Patriot League championships in 2008-09, Bucknell has now earned 73 crowns in 19 years in the league. In addition, Bucknell has had 100 conference players of the year, 83 PL coaches of the year and a whopping 476 individual league champions from sports such as cross country, track & field, swimming & diving, tennis and golf.
Bucknell has captured the Patriot League Presidents’ Cup, signifying the league’s all-sports champion, 15 times in the 19-year history of the affiliation, including 11 of the last 12 years. Bucknell claimed the overall and women’s Cup standings in 2008-09. It was the 12th straight year and the 15th time overall that the Bison took home the women’s title. In 2008-09, Bucknell won Patriot League titles in women’s indoor track & field, women’s rowing and men’s golf. Additionally, the baseball and men’s lacrosse teams captured regular-season titles.
According to federal data released by the NCAA in the fall of 2008, Bucknell’s four-year student-athlete graduation rate was second-highest in the nation among student-athletes who entered college between the 1998-99 and 2001-02 academic years. With a four-class average of 89 percent, Bucknell trailed only Davidson (92 percent) among all Division I institutions reporting federal graduation rates (the Ivy League and military academies do not report federal graduation rates). Georgetown, Notre Dame and Holy Cross were also at 89 percent. Bucknell’s student-athlete graduation rate is identical to its overall student-body average of 89 percent.
Bucknell has claimed a league-high 113 Patriot League Scholar-Athletes of the Year since the league’s inception as an all-sports conference in 1990-91.
Bucknell ranks FIFTH in the nation (to Nebraska, Notre Dame, Penn State and Stanford) in total number of ESPN The Magazine All-America selections.
A total of 366 Bison appeared on the Patriot League Academic Honor Roll in 2008-09 after recording a GPA of 3.2 or better during their sport’s competition season. Among all BU student-athletes, 255 made the Dean’s List with GPAs of 3.5 or better in the spring of 2009.
24 of Bucknell’s 27 varsity squads posted team GPAs of 3.0 or better in the spring of 2009.
In addition to the 117 ESPN the Magazine Academic All-Americans produced since 1970, Bucknell has also claimed 276 Academic All-District honorees over the same span, including a school-record 22 in 2008-09.
A major element in ensuring Bucknell’s commitment to athletics excellence is the Kenneth G. Langone Athletics & Recreation Center, which opened fully in 2003. One of the finest collegiate athletics facilities of its kind, the center includes the 4,000-seat Sojka Pavilion, the Olympic class Kinney Natatorium, the Krebs Family Fitness Center and the Berger Family Weight Room. A Hall of Fame area, a display of Bucknell’s Medal of Honor recipients, a new Academic All-America wall, a sports medicine suite, modern offices for coaches and staff, and locker room and classroom space are also included in the facility’s layout.

Bucknell Bison Athletics
A National Model in Promoting the Scholar-Athlete Ideal Bucknell Athletics is first and foremost a student-centered organization, one that strives to be a national model when it comes to operating by a true scholar-athlete model. At Bucknell, student-athletes’ academic programs are their first priority, and providing a competitive Division I athletics program only advances the mission, values and residential learning goals of the university. To that end, the Department of Athletics and Recreation proactively seeks ways to assist student-athletes in their daily academic pursuits. Below are just some of the student-athlete support programs currently in place. FACULTY ATHLETICS REPRESENTATIVE: The faculty athletics representative (FAR) is a member of the faculty or administrative staff who is designated to represent Bucknell in its relationships with the NCAA and the Patriot League. Bucknell’s FAR is Mitch Chernin, Professor of Biology. The FAR can enhance the student-athlete experience by promoting a balance between academics, athletics and the social lives of student-athletes, which affords them opportunities to enjoy the full range of collegiate experiences available to students generally. SIDELINE COACH PROGRAM: This program is a truly unique initiative in Division I college athletics, and it involves the invitation of a member of the faculty, administration, staff or community by one of Bucknell’s 27 varsity teams. The participant has the opportunity to discuss the overall program with the respective coaching staff, including practice preparation and strategy for the upcoming contest. The sideline coach attends a practice session and an actual intercollegiate competition, where he/she is introduced to the team and gains rarely seen insight into the relationships that exist between player-coach and player-player. The purpose of the Sideline Coaches Program is to foster a better understanding by the faculty and administration of the roles played by coaches and athletes in the university’s competitive intercollegiate athletic arena. ACADEMIC ENHANCEMENT CENTER: In the Fall of 2005, the Department of Athletics opened a study/computer lab for student-athletes on the concourse level of Sojka Pavilion. The center is outfitted with computers, a laser printer, four television monitors and a projection unit with computer, VCR and DVD player. Additionally, the study lab can be used as a meeting place for group projects, tutorial area or just a secluded and quiet study space before or after practice. LAPTOP PROGRAM: The Department of Athletics owns a number of laptop computers that may be signed out by student-athletes for use on away trips. STUDENT-ATHLETE ADVISORY COMMITTEE (SAAC): Representatives from each varsity team comprise the SAAC, which is designed to enhance the total student-athlete experience by promoting opportunity, protecting student-athlete welfare, and fostering a positive student-athlete image. The Committee is an invaluable resource for promoting communication between athletics administration and student-athletes; promoting communication between athletics and campus-wide administration; providing feedback and insight, as well as soliciting responses into department issues and proposed NCAA legislation; building a sense of community within the athletics program involving all athletics teams; organizing community service projects and efforts; creating a vehicle for student-athlete representation on campus-wide committees; serving as a collective voice of campus student-athletes; and disseminating information to the student-athlete body. OTHER PROGRAMMING: The Department of Athletics, through the identification of outside speakers and periodic “Brown Bag Luncheons,” thrives to enhance the quality of the student-athlete experience as well as to educate student-athletes on a variety of issues that may affect them throughout their collegiate career. Some recent topics of interest have been alcohol, nutrition, body image, hazing, sexuality, diversity, career development, study skills, religious life and gambling.

Bucknell Athletics Facilities THE KENNETH LANGONE ATHLETICS & RECREATION CENTER
Senior attackman Tim Brandau enters the 2010 season with 98 career points.
The Bucknell University Department of Athletics and Recreation prides itself on setting the standard of excellence when it comes to success both on the playing fields and in the classroom. With 15 Patriot League Presidents’ Cups in 19 years, national leadership in graduation rates, 118 Academic All-Americans in 39 years and 114 Patriot League Scholar-Athletes in 19 years, Bucknell is clearly at the head of the class in terms of upholding the scholar-athlete model. The addition of the Kenneth G. Langone Athletics and Recreation Center, one of the finest collegiate athletics and recreation venues of its kind, ensures the continuation of that success. The facility enhances each of Bucknell’s 27 varsity programs and greatly expands the scope of its growing intramural and recreational sports offerings. A visually appealing structure located along Moore Avenue on the “downhill” side of campus, the Langone Athletics and Recreation Center was designed to reach out to all members of the campus community, including the student body, varsity student-athletes, faculty, staff and alumni. Three primary venues lie within the facility: the Arthur D. Kinney Jr. Natatorium, the 4,000-seat Gary A. Sojka Pavilion and the Krebs Family Fitness Center. Other features include a new location for the Bucknell Athletics Hall of Fame, a display of Bucknell’s Congressional Medal of Honor recipients, a brand new display highlighting Bucknell’s all-time Academic All-Americans, a sports medicine and athletic training suite, classrooms, modern offices for coaches and staff and increased locker room space for varsity and recreational athletes. The facility is named in honor of Ken Langone, a 1957 Bucknell graduate who, along with his wife Elaine, pledged $11 million toward the center’s construction. Langone was a member of the university Board of Trustees from 1980 to 1996. One of the special qualities of the Langone Athletics and Recreation Center is the manner in which it supplements the pre-existing facilities. The construction surrounds Gerhard Fieldhouse and historic Davis Gymnasium, which has been restored as a competition venue for the Bison wrestling and volleyball teams, as well as intramural, recreation and other varsity practice activities. As Bucknell continues to strive toward its mission of setting the standard of excellence in college athletics, the Langone Athletics and Recreation Center becomes the centerpiece in an already impressive cache of athletics facilities that includes the 13,100-seat Christy Mathewson-Memorial Stadium and its newly installed FieldTurf and 8-lane track surface; the scenic Bucknell Golf Club; Depew Field, the home of the Bison baseball team that will debut a new FieldTurf surface in 2010; the West Fields softball diamond; and Emmitt Field and Graham Field at Holmes Stadium, the new portion of the West Fields project that includes covered grandstand seats, ticket and concession areas, team rooms, a training room and a press box area for soccer, field hockey and women’s lacrosse.

BUCKNELL BISON 2010 Men’s Lacrosse
2010 Season Preview The Bucknell men’s lacrosse team in 2010 returns as much offensive ammunition as anyone in the Patriot League, a resurgent faceoff unit and plenty of talented defenders to make up for some key graduation losses there. Perhaps more importantly, the Bison veterans return this spring with a feeling that there is some unfinished business to take care of. A year ago the Bison ran the table in Patriot League play, parlaying a perfect 6-0 conference record into the program’s first experience hosting the Patriot League Tournament. After dispatching Army in the semifinals, Bucknell dropped an agonizing 9-8 verdict to Navy in the championship game, spoiling a “what might have been” season. All told, the Bison were 9-7 in 2009. Four of those seven setbacks came by one goal, and two others were competitive losses to teams ranked in the top six (Duke, Notre Dame). Ultimately a reversal of one or two of those close losses might have meant a bid to the NCAA Tournament. And that will be a key motivating factor for the Orange & Blue heading into 2010. “We are to the point in our program now where we would be disappointed not to win a Patriot League championship,” said reigning league coach of the year Frank Fedorjaka. “That is our primary goal every year, and all of our preparation is geared toward winning the Patriot League. We feel like we have worked hard to take that next step.” Offensively, Bucknell returns seven of the nine men who scored three or more goals last season. Heading the list is two-time All-American Austin Winter, who is already one of the highest scoring and most decorated players in program history. Winter, a team co-captain this season along with Scott Monfort, had 17 goals and 32 assists in 15 games last season, and he is one of just five Bison laxmen to record 150 career points. “All of those accolades do not affect him at all,” said Fedorjaka of Winter. “He brings passion every day in practice. His work ethic is what has made him a great player, and it has rubbed off on his teammates.” But Bucknell’s attack unit is more than just Winter. Fellow senior Tim Brandau starts for the fourth straight year and has 98 career points, and junior Mike Danylyshyn moves back to his natural attack position after playing midfield for two years. Danylyshyn, who had 16 goals and nine assists last season, gives the Bison a lefthanded presence up front as he replaces 100-goal scorer Joe Mele.
In the offensive midfield, 2009 Patriot League Rookie of the Year Charlie Streep is already one of the best around. Streep took the league by storm a year ago, producing 25 goals and seven assists as a rookie. He had three gamewinning goals, including a miraculous buzzerbeater against Navy in March, and his teammates and coaches had enough confidence in him that he had the ball in his stick in key moments of tight games throughout the year. Senior Chris Palmer and junior Ryan Klipstein will likely join Streep on the first line, with senior Brandon Buchmayr, sophomore Nick Gantsoudes and freshman Kyle O’Keefe comprising a potent second line. “We do have a lot of offensive firepower,” said Fedorjaka. “We feel like if we can play the defense that we are accustomed to, we can be right there at the end.” Going into last season, the major concern was at the faceoff X. That issue disappeared quickly thanks to Jake Clarke. Now a junior, the former walk-on not only won the faceoff job, he became one of the best in the nation and broke numerous school records along the way. A First Team All-Patriot League selection, Clarke broke Bucknell marks for faceoff wins (163) and grounds balls (98) in a season, and he ranked among the national leaders in both categories. This year Fedorjaka feels like he has two more top-notch faceoff specialists in freshmen Ryan Gutowski and Wills Miller, which could mean Clarke would see more time on the wings, where his speed and ground ball ability would be put to even better use. Regardless, Clarke will certainly remain on the field even more this year, as he is also perhaps the team’s top returning short-stick defensive midfielder. This is the position that was hit hardest by graduation, as 2009 regulars Michael Cooke, John Togneri and Doug Buckley do not return. Joining Clarke in this important unit will be two much-improved players who are long on talent but short on experience: junior Jason Foreit and sophomore Andrew Van Valkenburg. Billy Haire, a 2009 All-American and Patriot League Defensive Player of the Year who started every game over the last four years, and twoyear starter Tom Izard have been lost on close defense, but the Bison will not be as green as might be expected there. Junior John Collett is back after starting every game and performing very well a year ago. Joining him on the top close defense unit will be junior Alex Lyons and sophomore Jason
DID YOU KNOW: Half of Bucknell’s classes have 17 students or fewer.
Neithamer. A former standout at prep power Boys’ Latin, Lyons has paid his dues as a mandown defender and fourth defenseman for the last two seasons, and has seen plenty of field time. Neithamer, meanwhile, was fantastic as a long-stick defensive midfielder as a freshman last season, and he will likely inherit Haire’s role as the No. 1 stopper assigned to the opposition’s best attackman. Another very talented sophomore in ground-ball machine John Scally joins Monfort, a four-year regular, as the top poles. Also keep an eye on freshman Mike Huffner, who had an outstanding fall season and will likely see time at both close defense and long-stick d-middie. Bucknell has had incredible stability at the goalie position for the last decade, as the Bison have had only three regular netminders over the last 10 years. The last of those, 2009 Patriot League Goalie of the Year Nick Sciubba, has now graduated. So has his trusty sidekick Matt Antonelli, who also had several big moments over the last few years. Breaking in a new starting goalie has been such a rarity at Bucknell that when it does happen it naturally leads to some uncertainty within the program. Fortunately, junior Sam Finnell eased much of that nervousness with a very solid fall ball campaign, and he enters the season as the No. 1 goalie. Finnell played in three games totaling about 16 minutes last season. He is inexperienced, but he is a terrific athlete who is capable of making the tough save and is strong in clearing situations. Freshmen Kyle Feeney and Josh Briskman back up Finnell. “Our fortunes will probably boil down to our defense,” predicted Fedorjaka, whose unit ranked No. 12 in goals against and No. 5 in mandown efficiency last season. “Billy Haire made huge plays for us and took on that lead role for four years, and now others are going to have to step up. The good news is that it’s not like these guys are brand new. They have all played other roles in the past, and they played very well together in the fall. It is going to be tough to replace all of the minutes we lost, but I really like the talent we have back there.” The 2010 squad will only feature six seniors, but Fedorjaka likes his team’s makeup as it prepares for the season opener against Duke in Atlanta on Feb. 13. “We don’t have many seniors, but our senior leadership has been outstanding,” said Fedorjaka. “Our team chemistry is great, and it has probably been my most pleasant surprise.”
Junior Jake Clarke broke team records for ground balls and faceoff wins last season.

BUCKNELL BISON 2010 Men’s Lacrosse Bison Coaching Staff FRANK FEDORJAKA HEAD COACH 5th SEASON
Frank Fedorjaka was picked as the 2009 Patriot League Coach of the Year.
After two stints as an assistant coach at Bucknell spanning nearly a decade, Frank Fedorjaka took over as head coach in 2006 when he succeeded longtime mentor Sid Jamieson. Fedorjaka became only the second head coach in Bucknell lacrosse history, following in the footsteps of Jamieson, the Bucknell Hall of Famer who founded the varsity lacrosse program in 1968. In his first season at the helm, Fedorjaka led the Bison to a historic victory over No. 1 Maryland — the program’s first-ever victory over a top-ranked team — and another top-20 road win at Penn State later in the season. The victories really began to start pouring in year No. 2, as the Bison went 11-4, including three top-20 wins, and came within one of the school record for wins in a season. Another 10-win season followed in 2008, and the Bison advanced all the way to the Patriot League championship game for the first time. Last season Fedorjaka was named Patriot League Coach of the Year for the first time after leading the Bison to a perfect 6-0 conference record and the Patriot League regular-season title. His team made it to the championship game for the second year in a row, this time dropping a one-goal heartbreaker to Navy. Known throughout his career as one of the college game’s best defensive minds, Fedorjaka’s teams annually rank among the national leaders in scoring defense, man-down defense and riding efficiency. In his first four years as head coach he has mentored three All-Patriot League defensemen, including 2009 All-American Billy Haire, and two allconference goalies. One of those goalies, Nick Sciubba, led the nation in save percentage and goals-against average in 2007. He has also coached two-time All-American Austin Winter, and last year’s team produced a school-record six First Team All-Patriot League honorees. Three of Fedorjaka’s student-athletes have gone on to play professional lacrosse after graduation. Fedorjaka rejoined the Bucknell lacrosse family after serving as head coach at Franklin & Marshall for five years. Fedorjaka served as an assistant coach at Bucknell for the 1992 and 1993 seasons before going to F&M. In Fedorjaka’s five seasons at F&M, the Diplomats compiled a 39-31 record. His 39 wins placed him in second on the school’s all-time lacrosse wins list. In 1995 Fedorjaka was named the United States Intercollegiate Lacrosse Association’s Division III Coach of the Year, after leading the Diplomats to a 12-3 record and an NCAA playoff berth. In addition to his responsibilities as men’s lacrosse coach, Fedorjaka also served as an assistant coach in football and women’s soccer during his tenure at F&M. Also while at F&M Fedorjaka served as the Chair to the Southern ECAC Lacrosse Committee in 1997 and 1998. He served on the USILA National Ranking Committee and NCAA Advisory Committee for Division III lacrosse. A 1989 graduate of Hobart College, Fedorjaka was a starting longstick midfielder on three NCAA Division III national championship teams. He was also a three-year starter at wide receiver for the Statesman football team, earning All-America honors in 1988. The Rochester, N.Y., native was named Hobart’s Athlete of the Year in 1989. During his career at Hobart, he held all reception records and remained the school’s all-time leading receiver until 2004. Fedorjaka began his coaching career as a graduate assistant for two years at Springfield College (Mass.). Fedorjaka and his wife, Kathy, who is Bucknell’s head women’s basketball coach, live in Winfield, Pa., with their 12-year-old son Matthew and eight-year-old daughter Jamie.
JUDD LATTIMORE ASSISTANT COACH 2nd SEASON
Judd Lattimore, a former attackman at the University of North Carolina who had won better than 71 percent of his games in seven years as a collegiate assistant coach, joined the Bucknell men’s lacrosse staff as offensive coordinator and recruiting coordinator in August 2008. Lattimore is certainly no stranger to winning lacrosse, as success has followed him throughout his career. In fact, Lattimore coached in the NCAA Tournament in each of his six years prior to coming to Bucknell, and in his first year in Lewisburg the Bison came within one goal of a national tournament berth. In his debut season here, Bucknell was the second-highest-scoring team in team in the Patriot League, averaging 10.4 goals per game. The Bison ranked No. 12 nationally in scoring offense and No. 6 in extra-man efficiency. His attack unit has been ranked among the nation’s best. In 2007, Lattimore returned to his alma mater as co-offensive coordinator, and in his first year back with the Tar Heels the team finished 10-6 — a six-win improvement over the previous season — and advanced to the second round of the NCAA Tournament while averaging just under 11 goals per game. In 2008, UNC averaged 10 goals per game and was the No. 4 seed in the NCAA Tournament before being upset by Navy in the first round. During the 2006 season, Lattimore served as an assistant coach at Penn, where he helped the Quakers to a 10-4 record — their most victories in 18 years — an NCAA Tournament berth and a No. 12 final national ranking. A year earlier, Lattimore worked under the legendary Bob Shillinglaw at Delaware, and that Blue Hens team captured the Colonial Athletic Association regular-season title and received an NCAA Tournament bid. Lattimore spent the 2003 and 2004 campaigns as the offensive coordinator at Division II power Limestone College, and the team made it all the way to the national championship game both years. In 2004, Lattimore’s offensive unit scored 19.3 goals per game, the highest figure in any division of lacrosse, and the team scored a school-record 314 goals en route to a 15-2 season. During his playing days at North Carolina, Lattimore was a two-year starter for the Tar Heels and was an Inside Lacrosse Preseason All-America selection in 2000. A native of Auburn, N.Y., Lattimore earned his bachelor of arts degree in interpersonal and organizational communication from UNC in May 2001.
JOE CONNER JR. ASSISTANT COACH 1st SEASON
Joe Conner Jr. is in his first season on the Bucknell men’s lacrosse staff. He was the assistant lacrosse coach at Mount St Mary’s for the past two years before coming to Bucknell. At Mount St. Mary’s, Conner helped coach the Mount to a 5-3 conference record and a No. 2 seed in the MAAC playoffs, the Mount’s first conference playoff appearance in two years. He served as recruiting coordinator, and in his final season with The Mount he coached the defense, helping them to a No. 9 national ranking in goals allowed. Conner is a 2007 graduate of Mount St. Mary’s and received his M.B.A. from The Mount as well in May of 2009. As a student-athlete, he played at Binghamton University for three years before transferring to Mount St. Mary’s to finish his playing career and pursue his coaching career. He was a midfielder at Binghamton and then was moved to attack when he transferred to Mount St. Mary’s. A native of Ijamsville, Md., he played both lacrosse and football at Urbana High School. He was a high school All-American in lacrosse and started at quarterback on a record-setting football team that won four straight state championships and carried a 50-game winning streak. His father, Joe Conner Sr., is currently the head coach for both football and lacrosse at Urbana.

ATHLETICS MISSION STATEMENT The Department of Athletics and Recreation strives to set the standard of excellence for intercollegiate and intramural programs in higher education, thereby advancing and drawing attention to the mission, core values, and educational goals of Bucknell University. The Department believes that student-athletes’ academic programs must be their first priority. It is therefore committed to maintaining Bucknell’s high national ranking for student-athletes’ graduation rates and for producing Academic All-Americans, and to continued leadership of the Patriot League in Academic Honor Roll nominations, based on grade-point averages. The coaches’ and staff’s paramount responsibility is maintaining academic priorities and supporting student-athletes’ education, even while providing the rigorous and serious NCAA Division I athletic opportunities Bucknell student-athletes seek. Further, the Department promotes the personal growth of student-athletes and the general student body by encouraging personal health, development, and balance among intellectual, social, civic, and physical pursuits; by celebrating challenge and competition; and by preparing participants for service and leadership in the world. Coaches and staff direct a rich array of athletic programs and recreational opportunities aimed at increasing student engagement, as well as strengthening character, healthy living, teamwork, sportsmanship, and spirit. In creating shared experiences for students, faculty, and staff, as well as alumni, family, and friends, the Department’s programs add substantially to Bucknell’s sense of community and foster life-long relationships with Bucknell. The Department embraces the University’s decision to compete at the highest extramural level, in Division I of the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA). Division I membership is valuable not only because this level of competition maximally challenges student-athletes, but also because it signals clearly Bucknell’s high standards and seriousness of purpose in all extracurricular endeavors and it helps position Bucknell apart from other National Liberal Arts Colleges. Likewise, the competitive success the Department seeks, measured in part by consistent contention for the Patriot League Presidents’ Cup, reflects positively upon Bucknell’s student-athletes and the University alike, and it brings distinction and national recognition to Bucknell.

BISON LAX IN THE COMMUNITY My top priority as a head coach is to be sure that our program has a positive image on campus, in the community and in the lacrosse world. It is important to me that our student-athletes give back to the University, the community, and to the sport they love, and that these three entities are better with Bucknell Lacrosse than without. That said, I am proud to announce this year’s Community Service Plan. Our goal is to contribute 24 hours of community service per team member. That’s 42 student-athletes x 24 hours each = The U.S. Army’s 101st Airborne over 1,000 hours! We will be contributing Division, Co.

THE PLAN FOR BUCKNELL Bucknell is a unique national university
where liberal arts and professional programs complement each other, where 3,350 full-time students are educated for a lifetime of critical thinking and strong leadership. For 160 years, the University has remained true to its fundamental purpose: to educate and prepare students for lives that make a difference and have a positive impact on the world. In keeping with that purpose, the University has developed The Plan for Bucknell, which includes its collective vision — “To provide students with the premier undergraduate experience in American higher education.” The Plan comprises five strategies: Strengthen the Academic Core aims to ensure that a Bucknell education is challenging and engaging, with openness to new ideas and a culture of innovation; Deepen the Residential Learning Experience will provide a residential learning and living experience that complements the academic program, integrates the athletics and recreation program and promotes personal growth and development and civic and ethical responsibility; Enhance Diversity is a commitment to diversity in all its forms within a civil and supportive environment of open exchange to prepare Bucknell graduates to live and work in a globally integrated and intercultural world; Build Bridges will bring the world to Bucknell — through visiting scholars and sports teams, international students and alumni, guest speakers, international focus semesters, and electronic communications — and bring Bucknell to the world through strategic partnerships and community engagement activities as well as opportunities for off-campus study and faculty research; Secure Our Financial Future will secure resources necessary to engage new opportunities, lessen dependence on tuition, and ensure our financial future. The Plan for Bucknell was unanimously approved by the Board of Trustees on April 29, 2006, having previously been approved by the students and faculty. We have begun implementing it and are determined to make it a reality over the next decade.
