  • Administrative History

    The Committee on Complementary Activities at Bucknell University existed from circa 1978 to 2011. The mission of the Committee was to foster an active, enriching community of students, faculty, administrators, and support staff to further the intellectual and moral aims of a Bucknell education. The Committee reviewed the policies and procedures on a wide variety of matters which fell outside the scope of other committees. It also evaluated the services, programs, and other matters within its jurisdiction to ensure that complementary University activities were an integral part of the community.

    The Committee’s areas of concern included:

    a) Services provided by administrative units of the University, including Student Health Services, Psychological Services, Career Development Center, Campus Activities and Programs, Housing and Residential Life, Langone Center, Office of Multicultural Activities, Women’s Resource Center, Office of the Chaplains and Religious Life, Dining Services, Bookstore, Post Office, and Brown Conference Center.

    b) Cultural and informational programs, such as lectures, art exhibits, theater, concert, and film offerings.

    c) Special University functions which occurred on a regular basis, such as New Student Orientation, Homecoming, Parents Weekend, Spring Arts Weekend, Commencement, and Colloquy.

    d) Intermural athletics and recreational facilities.

    e) Regulations relating to use of the University building and grounds, student residences, student conduct on University property, and vehicular traffic.

    f) Student extracurricular activities, including fraternities, sororities, and campus media. The Committee did not infringe upon the rights and freedoms of these organizations but it did concern itself with their contributions to the academic community, and considered ways of enhancing those contributions.

    The Committee reported to the President of Bucknell University and apprised the Faculty and Congress of the Bucknell Student Government of its activities and recommendations.

    Membership of the Committee consisted of:

    Six faculty members elected at-large

    Four students elected by the Bucknell Student Government

    Student Affairs Chair of the Bucknell Student Government

    Vice President of the Bucknell Student Government

    Vice President for Student Affairs

    Dean of Students

    In 1986, the Council on Greek Life was created as a subcommittee of the Committee on Complementary Activities. The Council reported to the Committee on issues pertaining to fraternity and sorority life at the University and advised the Committee on happenings within Greek Life. It also made recommendations to the Committee in order to assist it in strengthening the Greek system at Bucknell.

    In October of 2011, the Committee on Complementary Activities was renamed the Committee on Campus and Student Life.
