The University of Massachusetts is a five-campus system of national and international repute, recognized for the quality of its academic programs and the scope and excellence of faculty research.
From Nobel Prize-winning gene-silencing research to renewable energy, nanotechnology, cybersecurity, life sciences, marine science, gerontology, disability studies and advocacy, the University of Massachusetts is expanding the boundaries of knowledge, bringing distinction to the Commonwealth and improving the lives of its citizens. UMass students have amassed an enviable record when it comes to claiming prestigious scholarships, winning Fulbright, Truman, Goldwater, Marshall and Gates Cambridge awards.
While it has assumed its place of prominence on the national and international stage, UMass has retained a strong focus on Massachusetts, as befits its heritage as a land-grant institution. Nearly 80 percent of the University’s students are Massachusetts residents, and a large percentage of those students remain in the state after graduating. UMass campuses are responsible for discoveries that drive regional economies as well as the state’s innovation economy, a recent study indicates that the University is responsible for $6.1 billion in annual economic activity in Massachusetts.
