MASSPIRG is a statewide, student-directed, non-partisan organization. For over 45 years, we’ve worked to mobilize students on campus to do research, advocacy, education, and service on a variety of issues including environmental protection, public health, youth voter mobilization, and poverty relief efforts. MASSPIRG chapters across the state pool resources and hire a staff of professionals to work with students on issues that concern us as citizens. The UMass Boston Chapter of MASSPIRG was formed in 1972, when students first voted to fund the chapter. Do you support the continued existence of the MASSPIRG chapter at UMass Boston funded through a $9 per-student per-semester waivable fee? Any student choosing not to support MASSPIRG may waive the fee.
