Working to Make a Difference
Bridgewater State University works in an interdisciplinary and interdivisional fashion to offer opportunities that educate, inform, engage, and empower our students and broader community about civic engagement. We encourage all members of the community to be actively engaged in their local, regional and global communities. BSU engages and educates students and the community on the importance of democratic engagement, civic learning, and civic participation and community leadership at the local, state and national levels.
Civic engagement is working to make a difference in the civic life of our communities and developing the combination of knowledge, skills, values and motivation to make that difference. It means promoting the quality of life in a community, through both political and non-political processes.
