The President's office supports faculty and administrative professional development directly for several institutionally strategic programs. Please direct any questions about the following programs and processes to Brenda Molife, executive assistant to the president at (508) 531-2454 or email@example.com.
Candidates interested in applying for the programs listed below should consult first with their divisional Vice President to discuss the most appropriate program and timing of their application. Candidates must have a written letter of support from their Vice President in order to proceed to an internal interview with the Executive Assistant to the President. This interview must take place about six weeks before the application deadline for the program in question, and candidates will be notified of institutional support within two weeks of the interview. Internal decisions of support apply only to Bridgewater State College and are not binding on the programs in question, nor does internal support carry over from year to year if a candidate is wait-listed or rejected from a particular program. Only candidates going through the above process are eligible for institutional support. Once accepted, a candidate's financial support is contingent on returning to the college for at least a year.
Candidates are encouraged to speak with individuals who have participated in the programs; the names of recent participants are listed below. Those interested in participating in programs not mentioned here should consult with their divisional Vice President.
