BOSTON & AMHERST, Mass. -- September 27, 2012

State Street Corporation (NYSE: STT) and the University of Massachusetts
Amherst today announced the creation of a new career development program that
creates skilled, part-time jobs for 100 students who will be based in a new
office in nearby Hadley, Mass.

The UMass Amherst students will join State Street in a part-time capacity
beginning this fall with responsibility for performing select back-office
functions and supporting business lines across the company. State Street has
opened a new office in Hadley to accommodate the student workers. The new
program is open to sophomore, junior and senior students.

“We’re pleased to welcome these students from UMass Amherst to State Street
and provide them with a unique opportunity to gain ‘real-world’ work
experience in the financial services industry,” said Alison Quirk, executive
vice president and chief human resources and citizenship officer at State
Street. “As one of the largest employers in Massachusetts, State Street has a
long-standing history of collaborating with many universities around Boston to
help foster the state’s economic development and expand the students’
readiness to enter the workforce. We are excited about this new opportunity
with UMass Amherst to further strengthen our ties with the Massachusetts
university system.”

This new program expands upon a strong history between State Street and the
University. In 2005, State Street established a strategic relationship with
the UMass system by launching the State Street Scholars Program. State Street
Scholars is a nine-month internship program tailored for students attending
the University of Massachusetts Boston.

“We are thrilled to be expanding our relationship with State Street with the
addition of this new program,” said Carol Barr, vice provost for undergraduate
and continuing education. “We pride ourselves on helping our students find
valuable career development programs, and a partnership such as this
complements their academic course load and campus experience. State Street is
a world-class organization that understands the value of investing in the next
generation workforce. Providing our students with the opportunity to work with
such an organization – in a location close to campus – will serve them well in
their post-college careers.”
