MetroBridge Call for Projects

LEARNING AREA: Community Organizing and Planning
Jul. 2021




MetroBridge embeds real-world projects for municipalities and community organizations into courses at BU, enlisting our students and faculty as allies in addressing real issues confronting our region. 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 below.

The MetroBridge program is university-wide, which means our government and community partners can leverage all of the academic expertise at Boston University, including: Climate readiness, communications and emerging media, community engagement, data science, foreign languages, historic preservation, housing, human services, land use and transportation, political science, public health, and sustainability. Local governments are encouraged to submit multiple project ideas through the RFP process.

How to Submit a Project Idea
To submit a project idea for the 2021–2022 academic year, please fill out the brief MetroBridge Call for Projects Survey by July 1, 2021.

A member of our team will contact you with any questions and the faculty-matching process will take place this summer. We do our best to match each project idea with a course, but if we are unable to do so for the upcoming semester, your project idea will also be considered for future ones.
