The mission of the Board of Visitors is to serve as advocates and ambassadors for the University of Massachusetts Boston in order to raise the level of awareness of the quality and excellence of the university that will promote and strengthen the university’s vision for teaching, academic research, and major improvements to our campus infrastructure. The primary role of the board is to attract greater philanthropic and public support and increase alumni participation and community involvement. Members shall be engaged and active advisors to the chancellor in furtherance of his call to action on matters the chancellor shall deem appropriate.
