When Paul Gaines, G’68 died in June 2020, BSU lost a member of our community who did as much to advance racial justice on our campus as anyone in our history. He devoted decades of his life to advancing equality and equity for all and changed fundamentally and forever the entire culture of BSU. When he was appointed our first director of minority affairs in 1968, there were 11 students of color enrolled at Bridgewater. Paul laid the groundwork for making BSU the diverse institution it is today with 25 percent students of color.
LGCIE sponsors a variety of cultural and social activities open to all BSU students who wish to acknowledge and celebrate our diverse community.
LGCIE is dedicated to holistically supporting the needs of our student body. We host an array of programs that connect students to and create awareness of the plethora of support services provided by the University.
LGCIE is fully committed to creating opportunities that support persistence, retention and graduation of our students.
