President John C. Bravman


Welcome to Bucknell. Here our faculty love to teach, our students strive to become the best versions of themselves, and our alumni excel in their careers.

I think you'll love Bucknell just as much as I do. It's among the very best liberal arts institutions in the country — and we're making it even stronger. I invite you to learn more about our accomplishments and plans for the future. Better yet, come see for yourself.
