Faculty Life & Development

As a student-centered university focused primarily on excellence in teaching, Bridgewater State is committed to the professional development of its full-time and part-time faculty and librarians. This commitment is provided to them through all stages of their careers and across all disciplines and in all relevant areas of professional attainment, including teaching, scholarship and work/life balance.

Through faculty development, we aim to establish and sustain a community of teacher-scholars and a university culture that values, promotes, and rewards meaningful professional growth.
