Becoming a Student Bridges Partner Organization

To select our partner programs, Student Bridges conducted a series of interviews with schools, UMass student groups, and community organizations to determine the partnerships that would best meet Student Bridges’ mission. However, the program is steadily growing, and we hope to be able to expand our partnerships in the future. If your organization is interested in partnering with us, contact yruiz@umass.edu
