At the start of 2017, longstanding political and social rifts in the United States created a sense of fear and anxiety on many campuses across the US. Our sense of a collective public purpose and our desire for an engaged democracy — so important to the public mission of UMass Amherst — were challenged in many ways. The “Building Bridges” project grew out of this key moment.
