UMass Dartmouth is on a remarkable mission.

We will advance knowledge, because the world needs it.

We will help our students succeed, because they deserve it.

We will be inclusive and provide access, because everyone deserves to pursue their potential.

And we are committed to community engagement, because transformative learning goes beyond the classroom.

Our mission is integrated into the very fabric of what happens here every day. This fabric is woven with the knowledge that the idea of innovation isn’t enough.

Innovation requires action. UMass Dartmouth set out on a path to achieve Doctoral Research University status, and we have earned that title through the dedication of our faculty, undergraduates, and graduate students. Studying. Learning. Growing. Discovering. Every day.

The common thread in our efforts is student success.

Excellence is in evidence everywhere. You see it in our research, scholarship, and innovation.
