Alumni

The College of Social and Behavioral Sciences is proud of its 38,000 alumni who hold degrees in Anthropology, Communication, Economics, Journalism, Labor Studies, Landscape Architecture and Regional Planning, Legal Studies, Political Science, Public Policy and Administration, Resource Economics, Social Thought and Political Economy, and Sociology. As citizens, alumni are making lasting contributions to their fields of engagement throughout the Commonwealth, the nation, and the world. Alumni through their work personify the power of the UMass Amherst degree.

We also count on alumni to help us move the university forward. Like other public universities, UMass Amherst depends on state funding for basic operational needs. But private philanthropy is what sustains a world-class university. Alumni support makes a difference to our students and faculty, now and for the long term: for financial aid, new programs and endowed professorships, modern facilities, and improved technology.

Alumni gifts publicly acknowledge pride in UMass Amherst and the College of Social and Behavioral Sciences. The act of giving endorses a belief in the institution’s high standards of excellence and the influence it has in the world. Investing in UMass Amherst fuels the future for economic and workforce development, allowing us to create real solutions to real problems in real time. Your support is needed and greatly appreciated!

We want your pride in the institution—and the value of your degree—to multiply by standing tall in the public eye as a world-class educational facility. Your investment today, no matter the size, will help us make it happen.
