Promoting Student Success

$50 Million

Student success is more than a passion driving every individual at UMass Boston every day—it's a mandate. We are committed to the development of the whole student. And we offer programs that give students the resources they need to achieve their goals: college-based learning communities, peer and faculty mentoring, an Honors College, and both need- and merit-based financial aid. With your investment, we will be able to do even more, helping more students achieve their dreams.


Building a Research Enterprise

$30 Million

UMass Boston believes research is vital to the learning experience, and as a research university, we are on a remarkable rise. Pioneering research in a wide range of fields—from biomedical, health, and life sciences to social, cultural, and human developmental sciences—is being pursued by our world-class faculty and their students. We are educating the next generation of research scholars, and we need your help. Your dollars will support undergraduate research and mentoring, graduate fellowships, internships, and facilities and technology.


Transforming Our Campus

$10 Million

We are transforming our oceanfront campus, adding dynamic new buildings that offer laboratories and classrooms with the latest in technology. New performance spaces and meeting hubs are making the campus a destination for students and neighbors alike. Walking and biking paths and open green spaces are replacing concrete plazas; dramatic architecture with harbor views is replacing inward-facing brick buildings. Naming opportunities abound, for new buildings, performance spaces, and other campus enhancements.


Annual Giving |Just Imagine Fund

$10 Million

Visionary donors recognize the value of investing in an urban public university, a gateway to economic and social progress for thousands. Annual giving forms the backbone of support for all university endeavors, and is especially vital to meet the goals of Just Imagine. Gifts of all sizes provide essential support for student scholarships, faculty recruitment and development, campus improvements,   community partnerships, and so much more. Every gift, no matter what size, builds our future success.
