Bridges to Campus / Food Pantry

The Bridges to Campus initiative is a college-wide collaboration to promote success and retention of under-resourced students.  A work group made up of Wayne College faculty and staff guide these efforts with particular focus on the Bridges Out of Poverty framework developed by Dr. Ruby Payne, Ph.D.

Additional information about Bridges to Campus initiatives, including information on training and events, may be found on the work group's Libguide.
