The goal of the Bridging Differences initiative is to improve understanding and engagement across divergent perspectives at Tufts, through effective communication and programming. Our focus is on all members of our community—students, faculty, and staff, with an appreciation that lessons learned at Tufts can be applied in other contexts.

The Bridging Differences Grant program will support, develop and launch multiple new initiatives that support the Bridging Differences mission and vision. Recognizing the need for seed funding to support initiatives that can meet this need, we are soliciting requests from Tufts students, faculty and staff for funding of events, projects, and programs that can bridge differences across Tufts. Our plan is to enable our campus community to develop programming that will broadly support and develop structures, processes, and skills for students, faculty, and staff to engage constructively across differences.
