University of Massachusetts Dartmouth

UMass Dartmouth is part of the UMass system (the smallest campus after the Medical School). Historically, the university has served primarily residents of Massachusetts' South Coast. However, nowadays there are students from all over the US and the world. While the university values highly its undergraduate education, it has also been making efforts to raise its research profile. Our mission statement reads:

UMass Dartmouth distinguishes itself as a vibrant, public research university dedicated to engaged learning and innovative research resulting in personal and lifelong student success. The University serves as an intellectual catalyst for economic, social, and cultural transformation on a global, national, and regional scale. (
