University President

From 1996 to 2003, the President of the University was William Bulger, president of the Massachusetts State Senate for seventeen years, and prominent and influential Democratic politician with roots in South Boston.

Board of Trustees

The University of Massachusetts is governed by a lay Board of Trustees. In an area as sensitive and important as higher education - involved in the search for truth and new knowledge, and charged with transmitting it - lay Trusteeship ensures that governance rests in the hands of the people and is free of arbitrary political interference and control from either inside or outside of the institution. As ordinary citizens, lay Trustees represent various interests in the public at large on a non-partisan basis and are best able to reflect back to the University the immediate concerns of the people of the Commonwealth whom the University is dedicated to serve.


The Board of Trustees functions as a legislative body dealing mainly with questions of policy. The Board is not an administrative or management board. In certain rare instances, when required by the Massachusetts General Laws, it may function as an appeal body. The Board establishes the general policies governing the University, but has delegated many powers to the President and, through the President, to campus administrators for day-to-day-operations. Appropriate University personnel are held strictly accountable by the Trustees for developing sound administrative policies.


Composition of the Board

The founding Board had fourteen appointed members and four ex officio members. Formerly, Trustees were appointed by the Legislature or the Board itself; currently, members are appointed by the Governor. The size of the Board has fluctuated between twelve and twenty-four members. The current Board is composed of nineteen voting members and three ex officio non-voting members. Seventeen Board members are appointed by the Governor of the Commonwealth; at least five of those appointed must be alumni of the University and one must be a representative of organized labor. The other two voting members are students.


Overall, the board has five student members, elected for one-year terms, from the Amherst, Boston, Dartmouth, Lowell and Worcester campuses. Voting membership rotates among the campuses: two students are voting members and three others are ex officio non-voting members.
