The Bridge Program has published its inaugural newsletter. You can read all about the accomplishments of this innovative program that provides University level education for students who may not otherwise have access to higher education.
Here are a few highlights from the newsletter:
- Sixty-three students graduated in June

- Bridge continues to expand capacity and reach through the newly created Bridge Council
- Bridge developed materials to help students plan their steps in education after Bridge
The Bridge Program is an important part of AULA’s commitment to economic justice. Using the liberal arts as its lens, Bridge forms a diverse community of learners that engages in collective inquiry, working to develop strategies to navigate the systems of power that impact our lives. Bridge encourages students to continue their education in order to be creatively and civically engaged, broadening the horizons of possibility in an increasingly diverse and complex world.
