Remarks From FSU President Marlene Kim To BOT- 12/18/19

Good morning. I am Marlene Kim, president of the Faculty Staff Union at UMass Boston.

Sign the Mt Ida petition

12/5/19

Dear Colleague,

Over a year ago, UMass Amherst purchased the Mount Ida Campus when UMass Boston was suffering from budget cuts.  UMass Amherst assured the community that it would not compete with UMass Boston programs or for Boston students; instead, it was going to use this Newton campus for experiential learning opportunities like jobs and internships.
