"Writing this in the early spring of 2021, I can tell you that Bridgewater State University is standing strong. Members of our community have been tested time and again, and each time have found a way to rise. Reflecting on this, I can only say that I am prouder than ever to be a Bear."
Faculty members do their part in examining critical environmental topics of the day
Faculty researchers at Bridgewater State University hail from every discipline and often are engaged in important, interesting and cutting-edge work. Many of them also mentor students involved in their own research projects.
Knowing well of all this richness, we decided to seek out some
faculty members who have made environmental topics the focus of their work. In the pages that follow, we highlight some of their research, as described in their own words.

When John McDonough, ’90, realized a rotted tree outside his home had to go, he got creative. “Rather than cut the tree down, I thought we could pay homage to Bridgewater State,” he said. Considering that four members of the family had graduated from Bridgewater State, a fifth will be graduating in 2023, and he met his wife there when they were students, his reasoning made perfect sense. “We’re all Bears so I thought it would be a cool idea,” he added. So, he hired a chainsaw artist to carve their alma mater’s mascot, along with their names and graduation years. photo by Carl Hollant, ’15, University News and Video
