Earning a post-secondary degree is no longer just a pathway to opportunity for a privileged few. To the contrary, it has become a prerequisite for the retaining and growing of jobs in the transitioning economy of southeastern Massachusetts. Improving educational attainment levels in the City of Fall River and the surrounding towns is also critical to the attraction and retention of businesses.
A campaign spearheaded by the Bristol County Chamber of Commerce through its Education Committee is underway to raise awareness and aspirations about educational attainment in southeastern Massachusetts. EdUp is the name of this important community effort.
The EdUp campaign may prove to be one of the most important initiatives undertaken by the Chamber and its many partners. Please help us ensure that more people in the area aspire to higher educational levels. With so much at stake, we must all do our part to collectively “EdUp” the SouthCoast region.
