We are extremely excited to welcome Martin J. Meehan, our new president, to the University of Massachusetts family! His official presidency began the 1st of this month when he led a roundtable discussion with students at UMass Boston and said that he plans on turning UMass “into the best public university system in the nation.”

Regional vs. National Accreditation

Choosing the right university can be challenging and stressful. We are here to help!

There are many different aspects to consider. One major factor to think about is - accreditation. There are two types of accreditation: regional and national. While one is not necessarily “better” than the other, it is important to know the difference between the two.

UMass Pride

Here at the University of Massachusetts, we have a strong sense of community and pride. Our ability to provide a high-quality yet affordable education places us ahead of other universities. In fact, we are proud to say that The Times Higher Education World University Rankings, which ranks universities internationally, has placed us among the Top 100 universities in the world and as the No. 1 public university in New England!
