The future of work requires agile thinkers who can consider an issue from various perspectives, create new solutions, manage change, and add value in everything they do. Technological developments are moving at a pace never experienced in human history, and higher education must prepare new generations to thrive in this reality.

UMass Dartmouth is poised to fill that educational need. Chancellor Robert E. Johnson, Ph.D., the 10th chancellor of UMass Dartmouth, listens to students, faculty, staff, alumni, and the community to assess where the university is today, and where it should go in the future.

Teaching, research, and community service are the foundation of a UMass Dartmouth education. As a result, graduates have succeeded in creating a bright future for themselves and their communities. They have entered outstanding graduate schools, contributed to non-profit organizations and government, joined the corporate world, and grown as leaders.
