I am very pleased to announce our newest feature to the alumni website.  Today we are launching our online Business Directory.  This directory will include businesses owned and operated by UMass Dartmouth and UMass Law alumni and provide you with a venue to:    
  • Post your business along with your logo and special offers.
  • Search businesses by region, industry or both.
  • Connect with and support alumni in your region.  
How to list a business:
  • Select the link for the Business Directory (under the Online Directory link at the top of the page).
  • Choose the button to “Add Listing.”
  • Log into the online directory using your unique ID number.  Email us at alumni@umassd.edu if you need this number.
  • Complete the form – Remember, you can offer discounts and promotions to fellow alumni.  
How to find an alumni owned business: 
  • Select the link for the Business Directory (under the Online Directory link at the top of the page).
  • Click on the button to “Search Listings.”
  • Use the search tools to select listings by industry or region.
  • Find the right business to fulfill your needs.  
We hope you take advantage of this new alumni benefit and we encourage you to support your fellow Corsairs.  Visit the directory often as we expect it to grow in the coming months.   

Should you have any feedback about the directory, don’t hesitate to contact us at alumni@umassd.edu.
