Your workplace today looks and works very differently than it did 20 years ago. Technology has changed entire industries; communications have removed distance as an obstacle to engaging with peers and partners; new business models have shifted the landscape and made the values of adaptation and change more universal. With these forces of change determining so much about how you work, why can't education – which you rely on to succeed – change to work better for you?

This energy of change — and its importance to the region's future — has enabled a new kind of institution to take shape. It is an institution shaped not in reaction to those changes, but in alignment with them. By evolving the model for how working and aspiring professionals can access the area's public higher education resources, people no longer face difficult choices between their lives today and the one they might build for tomorrow.

Classrooms that were too far to reach now reach out to you. First-person experiences you couldn't find time for now put your time first. And this first-of-its-kind center for Massachusetts is powered by its flagship public university.
