Welcome to the University of Massachusetts 2017 Commencement site.
More than 17,000 students graduate from the University of Massachusetts each year. Three-quarters of these men and women will stay in the Commonwealth to build their lives and careers, fueling our workforce, transforming our communities and shaping the future of Massachusetts.
In this video, President Marty Meehan talks about the impact UMass has on the lives of students and the Commonwealth. “It’s impossible not to get emotional at a UMass graduation,” he says.
