Welcome to UMass Dartmouth! I am excited that you are here for your new educational adventure. There is a wealth of opportunities here for you to learn, make new friends, and begin to work to achieve your dreams. I look forward to seeing you on Move-in Day and at all the campus events when the new academic year begins.
As someone who reads voraciously, I am thrilled you are all going to be engaged in reading the same book, “The Righteous Mind.” At a time when our public dialogue is increasingly polarized, this book will help us think about how we form our opinions and how we communicate with each other in a way that is constructive and transcends mere self-interest. Happy reading!
