What is MASSPIRG?
The Massachusetts Student Public Interest Research Group (MASSPIRG) is a statewide non-profit and non-partisan student organization. MASSPIRG was founded in 1972 and the students at Middlesex Community College have supported a chapter on our campus since 1986. In Spring 2005, students voted to continue supporting the chapter at MCC at a $9 per student/per semester level.
MASSPIRG has two goals:
To research and promote solutions to important social problems at the local, state and national levels; and to teach students civic values through a variety of projects and internship opportunities. At the statewide level, MASSPIRG has become the commonwealth's largest and most effective student environmental and service organization.
