LEWISBURG, Pa. – A new Bucknell website offers detailed information about the progress of the Campus Master Plan, which this year will be revised in accordance with The Plan for Bucknell.
The website functions in two ways: It provides summaries and frequent updates of the Master Plan review process, and gathers opinions and ideas from constituents.
"This website is an important tool for communicating with the campus community, especially alumni and friends of the University who are scattered throughout the world and are unable to attend on-campus open forums and discussions," says Dennis Hawley, associate vice president for facilities. "It brings the Master Planning Process to everyone, no matter where they reside, so their thoughts and insights can help shape the future of Bucknell."
All facets of campus life
The Master Plan will address all facets of campus life, including academics, residence life, athletics, recreation, and the University’s connection to Lewisburg. Visitors to the website may access a timeline of progress, meeting schedules and reports, FAQs, and preliminary sketches as they become available.
In conjunction with the Boston architectural firm of Shepley Bulfinch, the University recently completed the first phase of Master Plan research, including a comprehensive inventory of campus space.
The current phase addresses the development of planning options based on continued input from the Bucknell community. Final Master Plan documents are expected this fall.

Hawley, '72, M'73, will speak about the Campus Master Plan at two upcoming alumni club events.
The first is at the reunion luncheon of the Bucknell Club of Southwest Florida on Feb. 17 in Venice, Fla. The second is at the annual dinner of the Bucknell Alumni Club of the Greater Susquehanna Valley on April 10 in Lewisburg.
