Bridgewater State University

The Campus Community at Bridgewater State University supports the liberal arts, sciences, and professions by promoting open inquiry, viewpoint diversity, and constructive disagreement.

A central mission of Bridgewater State University is to foster a campus community that advances critical thinking, demands the rigorous pursuit of new knowledge and deeper understanding, cultivates meaningful and diverse interpersonal relationships, fosters global citizenship, and strives to transform lives and improve the human condition. We believe the HxA Campus Community at BSU is integrally aligned with each of these goals, and that they can be furthered by remaining true to the following values:

Open inquiry. The Group advocates for academic freedom in teaching, research, scholarship, and service—and the broad liberty to speak and express oneself freely in pursuit of those activities—for all members of the BSU community and its guests.

Viewpoint diversity. The Group believes that BSU should promote the thoughtful engagement of students and scholars with a broad range of opinions, skills, and experiences, all of whom are committed to excellence in their work as part of a community seeking to advance knowledge and an accurate and true understanding of our world.

Constructive disagreement. The Group encourages respectful, honest, and courageous discussion, including discussion of controversial ideas, in and out of the classroom, by all members of the campus community.
