The Bridging Differences Task Force is comprised of a cross section of students, faculty, and staff from across the University. The group meets monthly, and seeks to identify the initiative’s key areas of focus and foundational initiatives.

The central questions that the task force seeks to answer include:

  1.  What differences are we seeking to bridge?
  2.  What actions are likely to be effective?
  3.  What indicates success?

In Fall of 2017 task force meetings discussed foundational initiatives while remaining mindful of the guiding questions. Pilot initiatives launched in the Spring 2018 semester and carried out for the remainder of 2018-2019 school year.
