What's Happening

Keeping our campus community safe requires evolving approaches and ongoing effort.  Based on lessons learned in recent years and core recommendations from the campus community, we are working towards addressing campus event safety and enlisting the students, faculty and staff at UMass Amherst to actively support each other in this initiative. Please view this page for more information.

ALERT: ALL FORUMS SCHEDULED FOR THIS WEEK ARE BEING POSTPONED DUE TO WEATHER. Please check the UMakeUMass blog for updates. Our campus is taking a comprehensive look at how well our current facilities support the out-of-class student experience... and how to plan for the future.  This effort includes Residence Halls, the Student Union, and other buildings in which student services and programs are offered.  Participate in one of our Open Forums on campus the week of January 26th!  And you can get and stay engaged in this planning process online via these links:
