The University of Massachusetts and Chapman University today announced the transfer of control of Brandman University to UMass. This newly finalized affiliation officially launches UMass Global, a nonprofit affiliate of UMass that will deliver expanded online education opportunities to adult learners across the nation and around the globe.

UMass Global results from an initiative first announced in March 2019 by President Meehan to scale up new online learning opportunities for working adults and make UMass a national leader in online education. The selection of Brandman University as a partner followed a comprehensive review process, during which UMass considered more than 100 potential partners. UMass announced a strategic partnership with Chapman in June 2020. After a year of defining the partnership and working with regulatory agencies and accrediting bodies, the UMass-Brandman affiliation will now officially operate under the banner of UMass Global.
