Collaborating with Communities Beyond Our Campus

University Relations has partnerships with groups in the community right outside our campus and the region beyond. These partnerships are an essential piece of UMass Amherst's role as the flagship of the UMass system.

Springfield-UMass Partnership

UMass Amherst's partnership with Springfield on the UMass Center at Springfield is part of how we're creating sustained and productive opportunities for collaboration between the university, the city of Springfield, and the region beyond.

Community Relations

Our partnerships with the towns of Amherst and Hadley, where UMass Amherst lives, are a part of just about everything we do at here at the university.
