Massachusetts Office of Public Collaboration

A Public Dispute Resolution Program Administrator, Research Center, and Neutral Forum for Consensus Building


To ensure the health and safety of our staff, MOPC is continuing to work remotely. It is best to reach MOPC staff via email. 

We are a research center and the state office for public collaboration serving government agencies and citizens of Massachusetts as a neutral forum for conflict resolution and consensus-building and an administrator of public mediation programs. Established by statute in 1990, the Massachusetts Office of Public Collaboration provides effective forums for collaborative planning, problem-solving, and public engagement on contentious public issues, and builds capacity within state, regional, and municipal government through evidence-based programming and expedited procurement of resources.
