About Us

office of governmental & community affairs

The Office of Governmental and Community Affairs at Boston College is responsible for the University's interaction and fostering of positive relationships with our host communities of Boston and Newton, as well as the federal, state, and city levels of government.

The Office oversees a wide range of activities and programs that benefit the communities of Boston and Newton by offering scholarship assistance to undergraduates, continuing education benefits to municipal employees, grant funding for community-based organizations, tutoring and literacy support in the local schools and access to artistic, cultural and athletic programs, events and facilities. Additionally, the Office serves as a liaison with the external community on matters pertaining to campus development and the resolution of issues relating to off-campus student life.

The Office also supports the work, scholarly research and activities of the faculty, staff and students of Boston College by facilitating contacts with government and community resources and providing counsel and outreach on policies, legislation and issues impacting the University.
