The Educational Leadership Program provides students with knowledge, skills, and dispositions leading to licensure as Principal, Superintendent, Administrator of Special Education, School Business Manager and Supervisor/Director. ORO Coordinator for Educational Outreach, Dr. Peter Cannone, works regularly in the BSU service area to explore the feasibility of and establish cohorts of Ed. Leadership programs. During the 2009/2010 academic year Dr. Cannone worked in Bourne, Dighton/Rehoboth, Hingham, and Cape Cod Regional Technical High School, among others.
Bridgewater State University enjoys many partnerships with its community college siblings. Among other activities, Dr. Cannone works with Cape Cod Community College administrators to allow students to transition seamlessly into BSU's degree programs in Education.The Earthview program uses a 20-foot high, hand-painted balloon model of the globe to spread excitement about Geography among middle- and high-school students. The program is led by BSU Geographers James Hayes-Bohanan and Vernon Domingo.
The Office for Regional Outreach provides logistical support such as scheduling to the Earthview program, which to date has served about seventeen thousand students statewide.

BSU participated in the development of a new science and math course on the principles of aviation. The course will be delivered at New Bedford High School and include the use of two of BSC's former flight simulators. NBHS students will take several trips to the BSU Aviation Science facility at the New Bedford Airport for supplemental instruction. The course is the brainchild of Anne Oliveira, Director of Science and Technology/ engineering at New Bedford Public Schools, science teachers at the high school, BSU faculty member Richard Abers, and BSU staff including Greg Bongiorno at the airport facility. The course is scheduled for take-off in September 2010.
