That’s 2013 UMass Law School graduate Dan Keith talking about the student effort to plant a “peace tree” near the university’s outdoor track.  The tree serves as a memorial for the victims of the Boston Marathon bombing, and honors the first responders. 

One of the marathon bombers attended classes at UMass-Dartmouth, and three of his friends charged with impeding the investigation, also have ties to the university.   

Chancellor Divina Grossman tells WBSM News, she’s proud of the university’s 9,000 students and what they accomplish every day.

Grossman says UMass students performed more than 2,000 hours of community service in New Bedford and Fall River last year.  They also took part in a cross-country relay race that raised money for the One Fund in Boston.
