New website showcases campus research, scholarship and creative activities
A new website that connects visitors and the campus community to UMass Amherst research, scholarship and creative activity went live on Aug. 23.
Research NEXT (umass.edu/researchnext) offers an accessible, magazine-style look at the campus’s research excellence and achievements while it connects visitors to the programs, information, and opportunities UMass Amherst offers for research and scholarly engagement.
“This new collaboration of Research and Engagement with University Relations in telling our research story will highlight exciting interdisciplinary work, as well as the strong disciplines that form their foundations,” says Mike Malone, vice chancellor for Research and Engagement.
The website’s special features include the ability to explore specific topic areas, a research image gallery, and research-focused news and announcements.
“I think that the new site does a great job of highlighting research centers, projects and news,” says Provost James V. Staros.
Research NEXT is part of the campus’s ongoing efforts to enhance the quality of information about UMass Amherst research and to make that information more widely available to members of the campus community and constituents worldwide.
The site was co-developed by Research and Engagement and University Relations. Comments, questions, and submissions can be directed to Karen Hayes, director, Research Communications and Outreach.
