Since the time of its founding in 1840, Bridgewater State has remained steadfast in its commitment to empower individuals and instill in its students and faculty a deep appreciation for advancing the public good. These missions are at the very core of who we were then and who we are now. Our strategic vision and resulting priorities rest squarely upon this foundation — and our university leaders possess the foresight, experience and civic awareness that will move us forward along this path.
Presidential Task Force on Racial Justice Final Report
May 17, 2021
The President’s Special Task Force on Racial Justice (RJTF) was created in 2020 by President Clark to examine the elements of policy, practice, and culture that are impeding racial equity at BSU, and to identify remedies and recommendations for corrective action. Some 70 members of our campus community have engaged in this thoughtful, necessary, often challenging, painful, and rewarding work. This report lays out many immediate and long-term steps Bridgewater can take towards becoming a more racially just, inclusive, and equitable community.
