Faculty Member’s Research Earns Place at Smithsonian

The Smithsonian National Museum of Natural History’s newly reopened fossil hall features a familiar figure. And, we’re not talking about the iconic Tyrannosaurus rex skeleton.

It’s Dr. Christine Brandon, an assistant professor of geological sciences at Bridgewater State University. She is part of a video shown in the same exhibit as T. rex at the august Washington, D.C., institution. 

Woodstock Remembered

Dr. John Marvelle, ’72, G’76, was listening to the radio in his Bridgewater State residence hall when he first heard about plans for the Woodstock music festival. The college freshman couldn’t have imagined the critical role he would one day play in keeping the multi-day concert’s memory alive.

Famous Footsteps

Looking for an inspirational summer sojourn without the crowds? Bridgewater State University’s Dr. John Kucich has the answer: Head north to remote Maine wilderness where you can connect with nature and Henry David Thoreau, Concord native and famed author of Walden.

“The landscape he saw is still very much there and you can see it through his eyes in a very immediate way,” Kucich said.

As with many faculty members, Dr. Jakari Griffith’s life experience has helped shape the educator and researcher he is today.

The assistant professor of management and 2019 Award for Academic Excellence recipient came to Bridgewater State in 2003, after teaching at Salem State College. Early in his career, he focused on management issues revolving around positive psychology and leadership.

Cybercrime knows no geographic borders, so it makes sense that a new journal co-founded by a Bridgewater State University professor aims to forge connections across the globe.

The International Journal of Cybersecurity Intelligence and Cybercrime, published in partnership with BSU and Boston University, seeks to offer empirical research articles, policy reports, case studies and book reviews. It debuted in July and will be published twice a year.
