One is hard pressed to find another city of comparable size with a greater concentration of world-class colleges and universities. Worcester, with its population just over 182,000 and more than 36,000 students, is home to 8 colleges and universities (a half-dozen more in neighboring communities). The Higher Education Consortium of Central Massachusetts represents member universities and colleges in the Greater Worcester area. Worcester's higher education industry and the vast educated labor pool it produces are among the City's proudest assets.
