In July 2017, the Bucknell Alumni Association launched the Be Herd initiative to build a direct line of communication between the Bucknell alumni community and the Alumni Board. Alumni were encouraged to share concerns, feedback and ask questions. With over 30 responses, the Be Herd initiative is off to a solid start. The feedback the BUAA has received is being addressed among the board as well shared with the University. Since the launch, the team of BUAA President Tara Garrity Lebda ’94 and Communications Committee members Kimberly Wilson Wetty ’93 (Chair) and Jeff Dorst ’90 have been working to tailor responses to each inquiry. Topics range from the political environment on campus, to student life and campus climate, as well as interest to get involved and volunteer opportunities.
Additionally, as part of the Be Herd campaign, the BUAA re-launched The Magnet, the BUAA’s digital blog. Be sure to subscribe so you can stay connected.
