Westfield State is dedicated to being an informative, accessible and vibrant community partner.

Westfield invites the community to join us in making the neighborhood and city a beacon of educational and cultural opportunities. As we work together to improve the quality and substance of life in our community, Westfield State is committed to being a good neighbor. Our Office of Special Programs and Community Service encourages sharing resources with the community in order to create and support a variety of projects and programs. Through numerous campus initiatives, student volunteerism, and a faculty/staff commitment to community engagement, we seek to create a campus community that embraces cultural diversity, the challenges of global citizenship, and meaningful partnerships in the region.
