The division of higher education serves more than 10,000 higher education members at the University of Massachusetts system, which includes the Amherst, Boston Harbor and Lowell campuses; the nine state universities; and the 15 community colleges. Members include faculty, part-time and continuing education faculty, administrators, librarians and support staff -- all contributing to make MTA the largest and strongest public higher education union in Massachusetts.
MTA higher education offices are located in in Boston, Amherst and Springfield to serve the needs of our members.
