At UMass Lowell, we cultivate greatness within our students. We are a comprehensive research university in an urban setting with a strong focus on hands-on learning. Our location in Lowell-a diverse and opportunity-filled city north of Boston-means we offer the best of both worlds: a traditional campus experience and the ability to extend out into real world career preparation through co-ops, internships and clinical placements with New England's top employers. We are entrepreneurial, with extensive support (including seed funds, mentorship and business incubators) for students who want to create a new product, solve a problem or shake up the old way of doing things. We are supportive. Whether the need is for mental health counseling, writing a paper, figuring out a financial issue, or finding a way to meet new friends, our dedicated faculty and staff are actively on the side of our students. We are nationally and internationally ranked for the quality of our teaching and research. We are also highly ranked for affordability, lifetime return on investment, social mobility, support for veterans, diversity and inclusion, and sustainability. We are bigger than ever before with 18,000+ students, hundreds of millions of dollars in new and updated buildings, hundreds of thriving student organizations and Division I sports. And we are proud. Our graduates are wanted and trusted by employers and graduate schools everywhere, leading to placement rates above 95 percent within six months of graduation. Our alumni around the world are successful, loyal and eager to help the next generation of River Hawks.
