BSU, Makepeace sign agreement

Bridgewater State University and the A.D. Makepeace Company have signed a memorandum of understanding to promote increased cooperation between their two organizations in serving the region and its workforce.

BSU President Dr. Dana Mohler-Faria and A.D. Makepeace Company President and CEO Michael Hogan signed the agreement on Nov. 12. The partnership will enhance internship and summer employment opportunities for Bridgewater students, develop paths to part- and full-time employment for students and graduates, and foster cooperation between staff of the two organizations.

“Bridgewater State University is committed to the success of our students and our region,” said President Mohler-Faria. “By building deep partnerships with employers, we can better provide a well-rounded education that helps prepare students to meet the challenges of working in our commonwealth and the world. Simultaneously, businesses like the A.D. Makepeace Company benefit from direct access to our talented, motivated and hard-working students.”

Michael Hogan, president and CEO of the Wareham-based A.D. Makepeace Company, said, “The university is a nucleus around which we should be able to build greater economic activity. We’re happy to finalize our relationship with Bridgewater State University.”

Frederick Clark Jr., executive vice president and vice president for External Affairs at Bridgewater, said, “The A.D. Makepeace Company has been repeatedly recognized for sound business practices and corporate philanthropy in the region. Like them, BSU is deeply committed to the economic, social and cultural health of Southeastern Massachusetts.”
