Community Partnerships

At the College of Public and Community Service we pride ourselves on the community partnerships, service learning courses, internships, volunteer work, and other University-wide links we foster. 

Since its inception the Harbor Point Outreach Partnership has been a huge success.  The project is in part sponsored by the CNCS Learn and Serve Grant; The Massachusetts Service Alliance; the Commonwealth Corps; and the University of Massachusetts Boston, Division of Athletics, Recreation, Special Projects and Programs.
