Support Resources for the UMass Boston Community

Everyone deserves to be safe, supported and respected at the University of Massachusetts Boston. We recognize that all of us—students, faculty, staff, and other members of our community—can only achieve our best in a safe, healthy, and inclusive environment. In the spirit of inclusivity, we have developed a list of resources for individuals who feel have been impacted by current federal actions. Please know that we aim to represent all viewpoints and ask that you submit items to our staff in the Student Affairs office via email so that we can continue to maintain a complete list.
