The UMass System



UMass Dartmouth is among three higher education institutions nationwide, and the only public university, to receive prestigious Higher Education Innovation Challenge grants to fund transformative community engagement initiatives.


Within just a week, the University of Massachusetts Amherst went big on Big Data. It outlined plans to create a Center for Data Science, raising $100 million to hire 40 new faculty members in the next 10 years. And it elevated the “school” of computer science to “college” status.


UMass Lowell and officials from the Commonwealth of Massachusetts announced plans for the university’s largest-ever sustainability project, a multimillion-dollar effort that will dramatically reduce annual energy consumption and improve the quality of the living and learning environment on campus.


Dr. Maria Ivanova, an environmental policy expert at UMass Boston, has been named an Andrew Carnegie Fellow by the Carnegie Corporation of New York.
