On Campus

Women's Resource Center: The primary goal of the Women's Resource Center is to foster a campus community in which women and men can live and work in a climate of mutual respect, understanding, and equality, and where women are encouraged to reach their full potential. The staff and Advisory Board will work toward the feminist goal of affirming the dignity of all women and empowering them to control their own life choices. Through a variety of co-curricular supportive services, educational, cultural, and social programs, we try to address the needs of women on campus, with special emphasis on the needs of students.

Center for the Study of Race, Ethnicity, and Gender: The Center for the Study of Race, Ethnicity, and Gender supports faculty development, scholarship, and interdisciplinary exchange and collaboration on issues of race, ethnicity, and gender and their intersections with other aspects of difference.

Office for Lesbian/Gay/Bisexual/Transgender Awareness: The Office of LGBT Awareness, is committed to making Bucknell a safe place for the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender community. This is accomplished by supporting student groups and efforts to educating and increase awareness about LGBT issues and current public policy concerns. The Office is guided by an advisory board comprised of students, faculty, staff, and administrators who are interested in and committed to the mission of the Office.

Off Campus

Off campus, students can take a class at the State Correctional Institution – Muncy (a women’s prison) and participate in a number of service learning opportunities with organizations such as Clear Vision and the Heiter Center, a local community center.
