At UMass Dartmouth, research and teaching are complementary and mutually reinforcing, as talented teachers bring the excitement of their research, creative and professional activities into the classroom. Joining the 5-campus University of Massachusetts system in 1992 has led to an expanded emphasis on graduate programs.
