Mission and Commitment

The City of Springfield is a city with great cultural diversity and is rich in new opportunities for its residents and neighbors.  UMass has chosen to embrace the needs of the city and surrounding communities by committing to creating an academic center that is also a community center.  By partnering with local businesses and non-profits, the UMass Center at Springfield is working to grow and serve the needs of the UMass family of educational institutions as well as local community colleges such as Springfield Technical Community College (STCC) and Holyoke Community College (HCC).  We believe in the City of Springfield and the people that make it great – let’s continue building a better city together.
