The Office of Community Partnerships (OCP) seeks to identify, strengthen, and create collaborative community partnerships that advance UMass Boston’s mission as a student-centered research university. This effort is aligned with the vision of the university to advance engaged research, teaching, service, and commercialized activities through mutually beneficial and equitable campus-community relationships.
Specifically, OCP will:
• Identify existing partnerships between the university and the various levels of community that each are engaged with.
• Increase awareness of partnerships between UMass Boston and the communities it impacts.
• Strengthen existing community-engaged partnerships.
• Facilitate the creation of new university-community partnerships.
