Michelle Hacunda, '12
Affiliated Faculty at Emerson College
I currently work as a Communications and Marketing Consultant and have supported clients with their brand building efforts in the education, biotech, and software industries. Additionally, I teach as an Affiliated Faculty at Emerson College in the Communications Studies Department. My courses focus on Digital Storytelling and Online Content and Strategy. Every Fall, I also teach a Social Media in Public Administration course at Bridgewater State University in the Political Science Department. In the greater Boston community, I volunteer every year at the Massachusetts Conference for Women on the Social Media Street Team.
My goal as a BAA board member is to develop a passionate community of BSU alumni in support of the University and each other. I want alumni of all eras to come together and celebrate the progress that BSU continues to make in public higher education for students from all socioeconomic backgrounds. As a member of the communications committee, I am eager to work with my peers to publicize and promote alumni achievements, events, updates and news. Ultimately, I want to connect BSU alumni and current students with one another and the BAA.
When I think of Bridgewater State University, I think of home.

My goal as a BAA board member is to continue giving back to this institution which has shaped the person and professional I am today. As a younger alumnus, I hope to contribute my unique perspective to the BAA and serve as a resource for alumni, new and old, who would like to get more involved with their alma mater.
When I think of Bridgewater State University, I think of the countless friends, mentors, and colleagues who made my BSU experience truly memorable.
