The Neighborhood Liaison Program was launched in September 2015. The Neighborhood Liaison works collaboratively with UMass students, neighbors, and other UMass departments, in partnership with town and campus public safety officials and local property managers, to educate students and other stakeholders about policies and local laws, build and strengthen relationships through dialogue, and promote civic engagement to improve UMass student relations in the community.
