Retired Congressman Barney Frank was welcomed at UMass Dartmouth Tuesday.

Frank took part in the campus-wide celebration of Chancellor Divina Grossman's official inauguration.

Frank has donated his entire collection of papers from his 32 years in congress to the Claire T. Carney Library on campus. Frank believes the vast array of issues covered in the papers will attract many viewers.

Frank will return once a semester to provide lectures to students.

A full schedule of events revolving around Chancellor Divina Grossman's official inauguration are planned for the entire week.
