The strength and culture of institutions are tested during periods of volatility. The University of Massachusetts has not only endured the national and global economic challenges presented during 2009, but has identified and fostered areas of opportunity and competitive advantage.

I am grateful for the work of my fellow trustees who have given their time, money, and expertise to ensure excellence for UMass, now and in the future. As a result of their efforts and the astute leadership of President Wilson and Chancellors Collins, Holub, MacCormack, Meehan, and Motley, the University serves its students and the Commonwealth at the highest levels while increasing available financial aid dollars and holding tuition and fees lower than the average of its peer New England public research universities. I would like to thank our elected officials for their continued support in these efforts.

The University management has taken steps, in the President’s Office and on the campuses, to reduce spending and to focus resources on growth areas. I would like to recognize our first-rate faculty and staff, who should be commended for their steadfast commitment to the University and our students and their willingness to sacrifice in order to move UMass forward.

More students and families have looked to UMass this year. They understand in increasing numbers the tremendous educational opportunities that are possible at the Commonwealth’s public research university. This is the place where quality and affordability come together.

As we prepare our students to act as fully engaged alumni and citizens, we conduct research that may solve some of our most significant global concerns—environmental security and sustainability, access to quality long-term health care and new medicines—and provide for them a path to participation in the world economy.

As a graduate of the University of Massachusetts Lowell, I know firsthand how the dedication of faculty and staff shapes the future of the University, the Commonwealth, and the world. As Chairman of the Board of Trustees, I encourage you to get involved in any way you can—whether through alumni engagement, or as a parent, donor, or friend. The University of Massachusetts is our asset to preserve and enhance.
