General Information About Urban College of Boston
The Urban College of Boston was established to provide post-secondary educational and professional mobility to members of the urban community who have been traditionally under-served by higher education. Urban College of Boston is committed to the belief that access to a career-related and quality liberal arts education, and to an accompanying system of comprehensive student support results in the professional and personal success of those who might otherwise remain unemployed, underemployed, or unfulfilled. Programs of study at the Urban College enrich lives through an integrated and individualized approach to the acquisition of learning and career skills, and to knowledge of today's world and workplace.
