Eastern Nazarene College Announces New Community Partnerships

Oct 25, 2022

Quincy, MA – Eastern Nazarene College (ENC) announces the launch of several new and expanded local partnerships to strengthen student services.

Over this past summer, ENC formalized agreements with several community-based organizations and agencies to enhance student services regarding health, well-being, and safety. These partnerships include Health Imperatives, Quincy Police Department, Compass Medical Urgent Care, and Manet Community Health Center.

These partnerships will be complementary to ENC’s onsite Counseling Services, Health Services, and Office of Safety and Security.

The benefits to students through these partnerships will be extensive:

Health Imperatives – Building on a multi-year partnership with ENC, Health Imperatives be offering sexual assault prevention trainings on campus, providing legal and advocacy support for victims, and offering off-campus counseling services to ENC students.

Quincy Police Department – Through a new agreement struck this summer, QPD will be supporting the safety of ENC students through closer emergency response coordination, an expansion of safety education opportunities for students, and stronger interagency communication with ENC’s Office of Safety and Security.

Compass Medical Urgent Care – Effective this fall semester, Compass Medical Urgent Care, located just 3.2 miles away from ENC’s main campus, will provide students with options for same-day appointments, radiology, and laboratory services.

Manet Community Health Center – Effective this fall, ENC students will be able to receive free COVID-19 and flu vaccinations through on-campus clinics facilitated by Manet Community Health Center of Quincy, MA.

“The safety and well-being of our students is a top priority of our team,” said Dr. Ian Slater, Vice President for Student Life at ENC. “As we look to continue to meet the needs of our students, we see these kinds of community-based partnerships as a key strategy for success. We aspire to provide the close-knit, supportive community of a small college while accessing the resources and services of this world-class city for our students.”

These new partnerships join other key community-based services and resources, such as the recently-expanded free membership program to the Hale Family YMCA for all students.
