The BRIDGE Builders are a leadership team of undergraduate men of color who help first-year BRIDGE men construct their path at UA. The Builders have a primary role of connecting participants to the UA student experience and facilitating activities and dialogue among participants during the BRIDGE Kickoff event. The Builders offer their personal insight into what it means to be a student at UA, live by the Capstone Creed, and serve as a role model for BRIDGE students. For more information, email Dr. Kiara S. Summerville at kssummerville@ua.edu.
