Family first

In both their personal and professional lives, siblings Gerry Pouliot, G’12, and Meghan Pouliot, ’12, will tell you that family is everything. Therefore, it made sense when in May the siblings shared the 2018 Bridgewater State University Educator Alumni Award.

“Family has always come first. It’s our foundation. It’s something our parents taught and instilled in us as far back as I can remember,” Mr. Pouliot said.

Career connections

Walk into the office of Rockland Trust and you’d be hard pressed not to find a Bridgewater State University graduate. The regional bank has more than 100 Bears on staff.

“Typically, we have found that they are great career-oriented candidates. We have seen many promoted within the first year of employment, based on their drive and educational background,” said Rockland Trust Employment Specialist Shannon Errico. “They also have great business, finance and accounting programs at Bridgewater.”

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.

Student Spotlight

Brittany Christian, ’20, has big dreams. They’re not focused on climbing a corporate ladder or founding a successful startup. They involve helping others.

The Boston native, boasting a strong record of service while at BSU, hopes upon graduation to start an international nonprofit organization to help young people in Belize.
