UMass Commencement 2019


UMass Graduations

Welcome to the University of Massachusetts 2019 Commencement site.

More than 17,000 students graduate from the University of Massachusetts each year. The majority of these men and women will stay in Massachusetts to build their lives and careers, fueling our workforce, transforming our communities and shaping the future of the Commonwealth.

In this video, President Marty Meehan recalls his own graduation from UMass and discusses the impact that UMass students have on Massachusetts. "It is amazing to see what UMass graduates accomplish once they leave the university," he says.
