MetroBridge embeds real-world projects for municipalities and community organizations into courses at BU, enlisting our students and faculty as allies in addressing a range of issues. The program has previously supported age-friendly community initiatives and could support any number of assessment, action-planning and program implementation.
MetroBridge cultivates projects by seeking out the distinct research needs of cities, towns and community-based organizations and collaborating with faculty across the university to find the best course match for each project. BU views their approach as a win-win solution as it provides tailored research support to under-resourced communities, while simultaneously providing real-world learning experiences to students from various disciplines to prepare them for their future careers.
Don’t miss out on the chance to receive project support from BU students under faculty supervision. More information, including timelines and project requirements, is available here and communities (or community organizations) can submit ideas here.
