Carleton Dean of the College Beverly Nagel and St. Olaf Provost and Dean of the College Marci Sortor have announced the fifth round of collaborative grants through the colleges’ “Broadening the Bridge” grant project, supported by the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation. In this round, the Broadening the Bridge grants committee made eleven new collaborative grants for a very wide range projects, summarized on the “Awarded Grants” page.

The next call for proposals for “Broadening the Bridge” grants will occur in fall 2016. As in the previous rounds, successful applications will propose projects that explore curricular collaboration and efficiency, especially by linking departments and programs, and that aim to achieve durable, long-term effects.
