Welcome to Bridges International
at The University of Michigan and Greater Detroit Area!
Bridges International is here for you! As a Christian Organization, we aim to help make U of M, EMU, Wayne State, CCS, UDM and Oakland U your home away from home. Whatever your culture and faith background is, we have some great ways to help you do that right away as you arrive on campus, and even if you will be studying from your home for Fall Semester 2020.
Click the Menu to discover how we can be there for you as you adjust to a new place. You can also discover ways you can help your peers through the ups and downs of studying in a foreign country.
