Diversity at UMass Boston

 With its mission to serve the city of Boston—a mission established by its founders—the university reflects the growing diversity of the community it represents, a mixture of people, cultures, and demographics unlike that of any other public university in New England. Ours is an institution that naturally extends itself to—and in turn welcomes into its student body, faculty, and staff—people of varied races, ethnicities, ages, and economic backgrounds. We are proud of that record.
