Mike MaloneI am delighted to provide this report on UMass Amherst research and scholarly activity.

Our campus strategic plan, Innovation and Impact, emphasizes continued excellence in our disciplines as a means of innovating and focuses on the engagement of external stakeholders. This year, we highlight some of these areas, many with a strong interdisciplinary aspect. This strategy has enabled continued progress toward our goal of being the investment of choice for our stakeholders in government and industry.

Thank you for your interest and Go UMass!
