Marcellette G. Williams
Our beginnings at UMass Amherst were as a land-grant institution with a mission of providing access to quality opportunities for learning. As in the beginning, we view the creation of knowledge and research as a public trust, its dissemination to our students as a moral vocation, and its application as a social obligation.
Our commitment must be to ensure the vitality of this University from a firm platform of shared values, common purposes, and collaborative effort. We must reexamine our traditions while acknowledging rapidly changing contexts in order to achieve a future inspired by our heritage but at the same time anticipating other futures.
