Academics

The faculty is the sine qua non of a university. At the University of Massachusetts, we strive to recruit and maintain a faculty whose capacity, resourcefulness and commitment to excellence in research and scholarship ensure for its students, the Commonwealth, the nation, and the world the distinction that is its hallmark.

The faculty of the University of Massachusetts understands the creation of new knowledge that strengthens the economy and social fabric of the Commonwealth and beyond is both a public trust and a societal obligation. The resourcefulness of the faculty and its commitment to excellence are among the distinguishing characteristics of a great university.
