Join Project Bruin Strong!

Project Bruin Strong seeks to normalize challenges, failures, and set-backs during the college experience and to build community amongst students so that they are aware that we have all dealt with failure, rejection or disappointment in a learning environment.

To reinforce these ideas, Bruin Strong would like to share stories of resilience from our faculty and staff. With your help, we can highlight that we have all dealt with obstacles and that we can grow from those experiences.

In order to participate and share your resilience story, please complete this online form:
