Vice Chancellor Michael F. Malone Vice Chancellor for
Research and Engagement

The University of Massachusetts Amherst has emerged over the last decade as a world-class center for research and scholarship. The campus is classified as a Research University with Very High research activity (RU/VH) by the Carnegie Foundation.

The success of our research programs reflect the faculty's innovative and interdisciplinary approach to research. This increases the relevance of research and creates new areas of study, many of them important to the social and economic vitality of the Commonwealth and the nation.

As we enjoy success there is still much to do to advance the campus as a top public research institution. I am honored to have this opportunity to help faculty, students and staff grow their research programs and to further the campus's mutually beneficial engagement with public and private partners.


The Office of the Vice Chancellor for Research and Engagement provides services in support of growth and expansion of research and scholarship on the UMass Amherst campus. Our goal is to foster collaborative research, innovation, technology commercialization and entrepreneurship by providing expertise, counsel, oversight and connection to partners and funders.
