MetroBridge embeds real-world projects for municipalities and community organizations into courses at Boston University, enlisting students and faculty as allies in addressing real issues confronting our region. Age- and dementia friendly community coalitions have an opportunity to engage and receive support from BU students in their efforts.
BU invites local governments and community-based organizations to submit their own original project ideas or select one based on a menu of project ideas.
The MetroBridge program is university-wide, which means government and community partners can leverage all of the academic expertise at Boston University, including: Climate readiness, communications and emerging media, community engagement, data science, foreign languages, historic preservation, housing, human services, land use and transportation, political science, public health, and sustainability. Local governments are encouraged to submit multiple project ideas through the RFP process.
To submit a project idea for the 2021–2022 academic year, please fill out the brief MetroBridge Call for Projects Survey
