Outside Taylor Hall, the home of Bucknell’s School of Management, Frederick Franck’s Seven Generations sculpture represents the Iroquois idea that each generation must consider how its actions will affect multiple future generations. At Bucknell, we make crucial decisions according to a similar forward-thinking ethos. One such decision occurred during the October Board
of Trustees meeting. Following a decadelong process of refining and enhancing
more than 100 years of management education at the University, the board
unanimously voted to establish a College of Management, effective July 1, 2017.
This third college will allow Bucknell to forge new bridges between the arts and
sciences, engineering and management — delivering an educational experience
unattainable at traditional liberal arts, engineering or business colleges.

For Bucknell, this development will further elevate the University’s reputation
among prospective students and employers alike. Already, recent advances in the
School of Management have helped raise Bucknell’s profile among prospective
students, as evidenced by the profile of the Class of 2019, the most diverse and
selective class in the 126-year history of management at Bucknell.

Enhancements include four interdisciplinary major programs launched in
2011 — accounting and financial management; managing for sustainability; global
management; and markets, innovation and design — and accreditation in 2013 from
the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business. We expect the new
college will also increase Bucknell’s reputation and visibility among prospective
employers, benefiting all of our students.

The college will deliver to our students professional preparation integrated
with Bucknell’s liberal arts approach and core curriculum. We will continue to
build interdisciplinary connections among fields of study and across colleges. This
comprehensive approach, says Director of the School of Management Michael
Johnson-Cramer, will change the practice of management one student at a time.

There is challenging work ahead. The critical discourse that allowed Bucknell to
reach this moment in its history must continue as we create a College of Management
that strengthens not a particular piece of Bucknell, but the University as a whole. I
am excited about the significant and mounting momentum I sense on campus. Come
2017, Bucknell will take a significant step toward becoming the next, best version
of itself, and we will be poised to deliver an even more distinctive, relevant and
sustainable education to the future generations to which we are accountable.
