As one of the nation’s top public universities, it is important to the University of Massachusetts Amherst to publish a first-rate magazine to inform and inspire our readers. With this issue of UMass, we debut our new magazine website and unveil a new look and format for our print publication. Based on reader feedback and working with the talented people at Landesberg Design of Pittsburgh, our staff has created dynamic ways to present memorable stories from the UMass community. To better reflect the growth and success of our campus, we made our new print magazine bold, vibrant, and thought-provoking. Our new magazine website is visually appealing and easy to navigate with room for multimedia content. Our goal for both the print and online editions is to celebrate how UMass benefits the commonwealth, the world, and our shared future. In the 20 years we have been publishing UMass, we’ve enjoyed receiving an abundance of letters from our readers. Please keep them coming! Let us know how we are doing and what we can do better. Send us your memories of UMass and your story ideas.
With pride in our great university,
The UMass magazine team
