Two students conversing outside.

EMU awarded grant to foster dialogue and bridge divides.

Eastern Michigan University's Academic and Student Affairs Division was awarded a renewable $5,000 Bringing Theory to Practice Campus Dialogues grant from the American Association of College and Universities. The grant was written by Amy Johnson (Chemistry Department), Kate Curley (Campus Life), John Koolage (General Education) and Christine Deacons (Holman Success Center). These efforts seek to create a more collaborative and inclusive campus community. The full vision can be found on the Bridge Our Divides webpage.
