MassPIRG Information

What is MassPIRG?

The Massachusetts Student Public Interest Research Group (MassPIRG) is a statewide student-directed, student-funded, nonpartisan organization engaging in research, education, service, and action on environmental, consumer, higher education, voter registration, and hunger relief issues. MassPIRG chapters across the state pool resources through a waivable fee each semester and hire a staff of professionals to work with students on these issues. NSCC students have voted to fund a MassPIRG chapter on our campuses. Therefore, all students are automatically assessed the $9 charge each semester.
