April 2013

As we welcome in spring, this week we celebrate the inauguration of Chancellor Divina Grossman as she formally becomes the leader of the University of Massachusetts Dartmouth.  Through our Celebration of Transformation, we provide many opportunities for you take advantage of the best UMass Dartmouth has to offer and invite you to one of the many panels, lectures or events scheduled during the week.

Make plans to come to campus on Tuesday and Wednesday to see the newly renovated Claire T. Carney Library and to listen to our panels featuring UMass Dartmouth alumni:
  • Law School and Lawyering in Today’s Economy
  • Lessons Learned from Successful UMass Dartmouth Alumnae
  • Healthcare in America
  • Innovation in Business
Join President Robert Caret and UMass Board of Trustees Chairman Henry Thomas for the Official Installation of Chancellor Grossman on Thursday, April 4 at 2 p.m. (registration required).  A complete schedule of events can be found by visiting the inauguration website.   I hope to see you throughout the week.

As always, make sure you check out the alumni events calendar – we have a lot of great events coming up this spring that you won’t want to miss.


Proud to be UMD,



Lori Jacques
Assistant Vice Chancellor for Alumni Relations
