UMass Dartmouth Celebrates 50 Years

Greg Desrosiers/TSM

UMass Dartmouth is celebrating its 50th anniversary this year and of course there needs to be some birthday cake.

University staff and town officials took part in a small celebration Friday morning in the Clair T. Carney Library to cut cake and pose for a group photo.

There were also artifacts on display from the 1964 groundbreaking.

Chancellor Divina Grossman believes it’s great the school and the town of Dartmouth can both celebrate important anniversaries together. She says the university’s roots spread past the local communities.

This was only the beginning of the school’s celebrations. Bigger things are planned for when students return to campus in the fall.

UMass Dartmouth will also honor its successful alumni throughout the year and invite them back to campus for upcoming celebrations.

This year will also mark the beginning of Grossman’s six year strategic plan, UMassDTransform2020, to boost research capabilities on campus and improve learning both on campus and through local communities.
