UMass Center at SpringfieldIt’s been two years since the UMass Center at Springfield opened its doors in downtown at Tower Square.  The UMass Center is a first-in-the-state partnership between the University of Massachusetts and other area institutes of public higher education, providing a central location accessible to each school's students. Through a combination of traditional in-classroom learning, advanced telecommunications, and other technology investments, the UMass Center provides college-course-specific opportunities not previously available in the area. Programming offered at the Center, which includes evening and weekend classes, enables students to pursue continued adult education, professional certification, and Bachelor's and Master's degrees. The partnership is currently comprised of the full University of Massachusetts system, Springfield Technical Community College, Holyoke Community College, and Westfield State University.  The UMass Center is a hub of educational programs, research initiatives and community collaborations.  Providing Pioneer Valley and Northern Connecticut residents with access to an affordable, public higher education is  a goal of the university.  The UMass Center at Springfield is making “Education Within Reach.”
