Welcome, Visiting Lecturers, to Bridgewater State College. The College’s mission is based on a commitment to teaching and learning, and the contributions of our Visiting Lecturers represent an integral part of that mission.
We have prepared this resource guide to provide you with information on resources and procedures that we hope will enhance your experience at the College.
The resource guide draws from existing information on the BSU and related websites but focuses on those areas that are of most interest to Visiting Lecturers. It was prepared in accordance with current collective bargaining agreements, Massachusetts Board of Higher Education policy handbooks, and applicable state and federal laws. Please note that this resource guide does not constitute and should not be interpreted as a contract or binding agreement. Should any information in the resource guide conflict with a collective bargaining agreement or federal or state law, the applicable agreement or law will take precedence.
If you have suggestions for information you would like to see included in this guide, please contact Associate Provost Andrew Harris.
