The Worcester College Corps

A Collaborative Project of HECCMA Partners and The Worcester Community

The Worcester College Corps, a collaborative project of H.E.C.C.M.A. institutions and community organizations, formed as part of the Worcester Together efforts. (The Greater Worcester Community Foundation and the United Way of Central Massachusetts with the City of Worcester launched Worcester Together in March 2020 to address community needs intensified by the COVID-19 pandemic.) The College Corps capitalizes on Worcester’s geography and abundance of higher education establishments to foster authentic community engagement to provide consistent education on topics such as racial justice, social and health equity, and reciprocity.

The College Corps employs its dense network of college faculty, staff, and community leaders to guide intentional interactions through resources, opportunities, conversation, and training. Through its offerings, the College Corps hopes to build a more equitable community. We welcome you to explore two of our current offerings, the Repository of Educational Content (C.O.R.E.) and our professional development training, Readiness for Community Engagement.

Our work is both for the community and driven by community and dependent on feedback and collaboration. We welcome your input and suggestions.
