FIRE Welcomes Bridget Sweeney!

By on October 25, 2010

I am very pleased to announce that FIRE has welcomed the newest member of our team, my new assistant, Bridget Sweeney. Bridget comes to FIRE with great experience, intelligence, and enthusiasm for our mission.

After graduating cum laude from Fordham University with a B.A. in History and Political Science, Bridget worked as a press officer at the Manhattan Institute for Policy Research in New York City. While there, she focused on issues such as culture, immigration, and higher education. In 2009, she returned to Fordham University to pursue an M.A. in Modern European History, completing her Master’s thesis on the intersection of socialist and feminist ideologies in late 19th century Britain.

Bridget’s passion for the study of competing ideologies and her commitment to the preservation of liberty on America’s college campuses make her a perfect addition to FIRE’s staff. I speak for all of us here when I say that I am thrilled to have Bridget as part of our team. Welcome, Bridget!
