In addition, there are materials from a Gustavus presentation on Building Bridges given at a 1996 national conference. This collection is organized chronologically. New items are added when made available to the archives.
Building Bridges is a student-driven conference held on a yearly basis in early to mid-March at Gustavus Adolphus College. It is aimed at promoting understanding and dialogue about diversity, while inspiring individuals to take action on issues discussed.
