Welcome to the Distinguished Visitor's Program's (DVP) Homepage at UMASS Amherst. Here you will be able to find out information about upcoming DVP lectures, meetings, officers, our history and other events.

The Distinguished Visitor's Program is financed and operated by the undergraduate students of the University of Massachusetts for the purpose of keeping the university community sensitive to the world in which it exists. In accordance with this purpose, it seeks to bring to this campus those persons whose experience in international and domestic affairs, the sciences, the humanities, and the arts qualify them to interpret, explain, and raise questions about life in all its dimensions. Furthermore, the Distinguished Visitor's Program seeks to stimulate critical thought and debate by presenting a balanced range of opinion with respect to a given issue.
