The BRIDGE Center

Celebrating JWU’s Multicultural Diversity
BRIDGE stands for Building Relationships, Intercultural Dialogue, and Global Engagement.

The Center upholds the Centennial Plan’s mandate to “enrich and expand opportunities for global learning” and “enhance opportunities for local, national, and international citizenship.”
