President & Leadership
Since the time of its founding in 1840, Bridgewater State has remained steadfast in its commitment to empower individuals and instill in its students and faculty a deep appreciation for advancing the public good. These missions are at the very core of who we were then and who we are now. Our strategic vision and resulting priorities rest squarely upon this foundation – and our university leaders possess the foresight, experience and civic awareness that will move us forward along this path.
