The faculty, staff, and students of the John W. McCormack Graduate School of Policy and Global Studies are very pleased and excited to partner with UMass Boston’s Office of Urban and Off-Campus Support Services U-ACCESS initiative to empower and support all UMass Boston students who are experiencing complex personal and social issues that might prevent their academic success. Members of the McCormack Graduate School community are “walking the talk” to serve underserved populations and to help remedy economic and social inequities “in our own backyard.” Through this service project, we hope to make a positive contribution to help alleviate food insecurity issues for our students in need.


Presented as part of the poster showcase at the Office of Community Partnerships' Community-Engaged Partnerships Symposium on April 10, 2013 at UMass Boston.
