Message from Dr. Marcellette G. Williams

Senior Vice President for Academic and Student Affairs and International Relations

On behalf of the University of Massachusetts, I welcome you to our newly developed website for International Relations. We now live in a global society where people around the world interact with one another on a daily basis. Central to the mission of our University is to provide a quality and comprehensive education for our students that will enrich their lifelong learning.

We believe international experiences aid faculty and students on all of our campuses in becoming more productive and responsive citizens. In fact, we strive to increase the number of students and faculty that have international experiences while at the university to ensure that our community has the background and perspectives to remain competitive in this global society.

The purpose of this website and our International Relations database is to ease the discovery of all of our global connections and on-going international initiatives. We hope this database will be the first step in the exploration stage for someone interested in student opportunities abroad, alumni programs, international agreements or our newly added, faculty teaching, research and service. The information stored in the database will also have campus-based contact information to help those interested take the next step for their global experience.

Our newest feature is a faculty research database for our faculty members to showcase international initiatives and collaborate with international partners. We hope you enjoy yourselves as you browse the University of Massachusetts' international initiatives and global contributions.
