The Syracuse University community is mourning the passing of Bridget Lawson, a dedicated staff member, friend, mentor and emerging scholar. For 20 years, Lawson was a fixture in many Syracuse University initiatives, academic opportunity services and organizations that benefitted diverse populations of students in educational and community settings.

Bridget had recently joined the staff of Syracuse's Office of Undergraduate Research and Creative Engagement (SOURCE) as its first assistant director. CFSA works closely with SOURCE, and we were overjoyed to have such an exceptionally talented and kind individual to call our colleague. Our office extends its deepest condolences to Bridget's family, friends, students, and colleagues.
