The LaunchPad welcomes Bridget Lawson as Assistant Director of The SOURCE (Undergraduate Research and Creative Engagement), located on the second floor of Bird Library. Bridget was previously coordinator of academic services with Syracuse University’s CSTEP (Collegiate Science and Technology Entry Program) and has supported diverse students in both higher education and K-12 environments. She brings a strong background of implementing academic success initiatives, preparing students for research opportunities, and facilitating diversity, equity, community-based, and social justice activities. Having earned an MSW degree, Bridget is currently working towards a Ph.D. in Cultural Foundations of Education at Syracuse University. We look forward working with SOURCE Director Kate Hanson and Bridget Lawson to support and engage with SOURCE scholars, many of whom are also innovators, inventors, creatives and entrepreneurs.
