BRIDGES PROGRAM

The SUNY Upstate Bridges to the Baccalaureate Program, funded by the National Institute of General Medical Science, began on the Binghamton University campus in the fall of 1998 under the direction of Dr. Donald Blake, Associate Dean of Harpur College. Dr. Blake directed the program until 2009 when he retired from the university. Dr. Anna Tan Wilson, professor of Biological Sciences, stepped in as Bridges Director in 2009 until 2011, when she retired from the university. Dr. Lisa Savage and Dr. Patricia Di Lorenzo, professors of Psychology and Integrative Neuroscience took over as co-Directors of the Bridges Program in 2011.

The program is aimed at helping students make the transition from 2-year junior or community colleges to full 4-year baccalaureate programs. The program targets students from groups underrepresented in the biomedical and behavioral research enterprise of the nation and/or populations disproportionately affected by health disparities (targeted groups).

Through fifteen years and five funding cycles, the SUNY Upstate Bridges to the Baccalaureate Program has hosted 260 students from five partner community colleges.

We are proud of the student's success:
