North Quadrant Support Services (NQSS)

North Quadrant Support Services, which builds on the highly successful academic partnership between the Medical School and the North Quadrant of the Worcester Public Schools aims to address some of the socioeconomic barriers to academic success faced by some students in the North Quadrant of the Worcester Public Schools. The North Quadrant includes some of the most economically challenged neighborhoods in the city of Worcester and students face issues ranging from food insecurity to homelessness.

With the support from employee contribuitns generated by the UMass Chan Cares employee giving campaign, UMass Chan has made a difference in the lives of students and their families through a partnership that includes financial support, employee and student volunteerism, and in-kind donations.
