    if you are going to be representative of UMass Darttmouth and have a true focus on urban issues, you eed to enlarge your focus to include Fall River and other communities outside of New Bedford and the surounding areas thereto. Right now there appears to be a heavy affiliation with New Bedford as opposed to the rest of the SouthCoast.

      We typically post job opportunities that have been shared with us by organizations in the community. We welcome job postings from organizations across the SouthCoast (and even beyond) and will share as long as they are legitimate and aligned with our mission.
