MetroBridge Program

The MetroBridge program takes a new approach to embedding real-world projects for local government into courses across Boston University. MetroBridge first cultivates project ideas by seeking out to the distinct research needs of cities, towns and community-based organizations, and then collaborating with faculty across the university to find the best course match for each project. We view our approach as a true win-win solution by providing tailored research products to under-resourced communities, while at the same time, exposing students from across many disciplines to the way their growing skillsets are needed by local government and community-based organizations. (BU Faculty: see our resource page.)

Submit a 2021–2022 Project Proposal

We invite local governments and community-based organizations to submit their own original project ideas or select one based on our menu of project ideas.

MetroBridge Menu of Projects

The MetroBridge “Menu” of Projects outlines specific opportunities for partnering with the program. These projects cover a range of issue areas, including several that are specific to the COVID-19 crisis. We also strongly encourage local governments and community-based organizations to reach out to us with your own unique project ideas or research needs.
