The University of Massachusetts Boston, also known as UMass Boston, is an urban public research university and the third-largest campus in the five-campus University of Massachusetts system.[10]

The university is on 177 acres (0.72 km2) on the Columbia Point peninsula in the city of Boston, Massachusetts, United States. UMass Boston is the only public university in Boston.[note 1] Students are primarily from Massachusetts but some are from other parts of the U.S. or different countries.

History[edit]

The Massachusetts Archives and Commonwealth Museum is next to the JFK Presidential Library and the EMK Institute.

The University of Massachusetts Boston was established by vote of the state legislature in 1964. Freshman classes started for 1,227 undergraduate students in September 1965 at a renovated building in the Park Square area of downtown Boston. The Founding Day Convocation was held December 10, 1966, at the Prudential Center in Boston. John W. Ryan was installed as the university's first chancellor.[11] UMass Boston is part of the Greater Boston Urban Education Collaborative,[12] In 1982 it merged with Boston State College (est. 1852).

In 1974, it opened its new campus at the Columbia Point peninsula on Dorchester Bay. The university originally occupied five buildings: McCormack Hall, Wheatley Hall, the Science Center, Healey Library, and the Quinn Administration Building.

The original Harbor Campus buildings were said to have had sparse and unattractive interiors, with odd mazes of hallways; the campus was known as "the fortress" or "the prison" colloquially.[13] They were rumored to have been designed by architects who were primarily familiar with prisons, although the library was designed by the Chicago modernist architect Harry Mohr Weese.[14] At one point in his career, Weese designed the Metropolitan Correction Center in Chicago.

McKee-Berger-Mansueto, Inc. (MBM), the company contracted to supervise construction of the campus, came under fire after its contract with the Commonwealth was criticized in a series of newspaper articles for being abnormally favorable towards MBM. A special legislative committee was formed to investigative the contract. A scandal erupted after it was learned MBM paid State Senators Joseph DiCarlo and Ronald MacKenzie $40,000 in exchange for a favorable report from the committee. DiCarlo and MacKenzie were convicted of extortion.[15][16][17]

The Clark Athletic Center, including an ice hockey arena, swimming pool, and basketball courts, was added later. It also hosted the first presidential debate between then Texas Governor George W. Bush and Vice President Al Gore in 2000. The cancellation of two days of classes to create security for the debate resulted in a protest by UMass Boston students, faculty, and staff members at the UMass President's office in downtown Boston.

The original buildings fell into disrepair, and there are[when?] plans for replacement. Allegations of shoddy construction surfaced again in 2006 when the underground parking garage was closed because it had become structurally unsound. All parking is now outdoors, except for the Campus Center garage.

Also located on the UMass Boston campus, the Calf Pasture Pumping Station Complex was listed in the U.S. National Register of Historic Places in 1990. Built in 1883, it is the only remaining 19th century building on Columbia Point.
The UMass Boston campus in 2009.

In 2004, a new Campus Center was opened, designed by the Boston-based architectural firm of Kallmann McKinnell & Wood[18] and built by Suffolk Construction at a cost of $80 million. It houses offices, restaurants in a food court, event space, student clubs, and activities space. It also serves as the new entrance for the campus and was the first major building since the original Harbor Campus was built in the 1970s.

In January 2015, the university opened its first new academic building since the original campus was built, a research facility named the Integrated Sciences Complex.[19] A second new academic building, University Hall, is expected to open in 2016, and the first residential halls on campus are in the planning stage.[20]

On June 2, 2006, Barack Obama addressed his commencement speech at UMass Boston to the graduating students. Among other topics, he discussed his speech at the Democratic National Convention in Boston in 2004.[21]

In 2007, the university proposed a plan to change the campus from primarily a commuter campus with many parking lots for cars to a more residential campus with dormitory-style living.[22][23][24]

Appointed on July 1, 2007,[25] J. Keith Motley is the university's first African American chancellor.

In 2009, the nearby Bayside Expo Center property was lost in a foreclosure to a Florida-based real estate firm, LNR/CMAT. The University of Massachusetts Boston has acquired the property for future campus facilities.[26][27]

In 2014 and 2015, UMass Boston celebrated its fiftieth anniversary and published its first history of the founding and growth of the university, entitled UMass Boston at 50.[28]

On March 3, 2017, former Bowdoin College president Barry Mills was appointed the university's deputy chancellor and chief operating officer. In this role, he will oversee the academic and research program and campus operations.[29][30][31] On April 5, 2017, university officials announced that Chancellor J. Keith Motley would resign at the end of the academic calendar year on June 30, take a one-year sabbatical, and return as a tenured faculty member.[32][33] According to University of Massachusetts President Marty Meehan, Deputy Chancellor Barry Mills will serve as interim chancellor beginning on July 1 and will serve "until [university] finances are stabilized and the university is positioned to attract a world-class chancellor through a global search."[34]

Boston HarborWalk and Division of Marine Operations Facilities[edit]

The JFK Presidential Library from the Columbia Point segment of the Boston HarborWalk on the UMass Boston campus.

The Boston HarborWalk follows the Boston Harbor shoreline that surrounds the UMass Boston campus.[298] On the southern shoreline of the campus, across the HarborWalk and in between Wheatley and McCormack Halls, are the Fox Point Landing facilities of the UMass Boston Division of Marine Operations. The facilities include a dock, pavilion, and storage facility. On the northern shoreline of the campus and adjacent to the JFK Presidential Library is the John T. Fallon State Pier, which is also operated by the Division of Marine Operations.[299] On July 17, 2015, an 800-foot segment of the HarborWalk between the JFK Presidential Library and the Harbor Point Apartments on Mount Vernon Street was opened, and features a paved walkway, benches, lighting, gathering spaces, and an artwork display area.[300] Construction for the walkway took place between 2014 and 2015, cost $4 million, and required adding stone along the shoreline to stabilize it. Much of the stone was blocks of granite unearthed by the Big Dig and was donated by the Massachusetts Department of Transportation.[301] From August 29 to August 30, 2016, the UMass Boston segment of the HarborWalk was closed from Morrissey Boulevard to the Massachusetts Archives to install new utility lines near the Fox Point Dock.[302] From December 1 to December 16, 2016, the UMass Boston segment of the HarborWalk closed for pavement repairs and construction of a new boat dock landing platform at Fox Point that is expected to open in the spring of 2017.[303]

Off-Site Locations[edit]

Future Campus Development[edit]

On December 7, 2009, a 25-Year Master Plan was published, outlining future campus development and construction projects, which included the construction of the Integrated Sciences Complex and University Hall, as well as the improvements to the Boston HarborWalk.[312][313][314] Future projects include:

  • A $45 million plan currently being led by CannonDesign, funded by the UMass Building Authority, and managed by Hill International to renovate Wheatley and McCormack Halls and demolish the original Science Center,[315]
  • A $164 million project to develop a new utility corridor and roadway network being led by BVH Integrated Services, Inc. and built by Bond Brothers, which began in the spring of 2013,[316]
  • A $120 million project being led by Capstone Development Partners, built by Shawmut Construction, and designed by Elkus Manfredi Architects to construct the first residential facilities in the university's history, with two wings located along University Drive North and West and one set back from Mount Vernon Street, which was approved in early 2016,[317] broke ground on December 1, 2016,[318] and is expected to open in the fall of 2018,[319]
  • A $71 million project being funded by the UMass Building Authority, managed by Skanska, built by Suffolk Construction, and designed by Fennick McCredie Architecture to construct the university's first free-standing parking garage located in between Monan Park and University Drive West,[320][321] which broke ground on January 26, 2017, and is expected to open in early 2018,[322]
  • A second general-purpose academic building (General Academic Building No. 2), which received $100 million in state funding in 2012,[323][324][325]
  • A phased demolition of the former Bayside Expo Center building in order to expand the parking area, build new pedestrian walkways connecting Mount Vernon Street with the Dorchester Shores Reservation and the HarborWalk, and improve the lighting, landscaping, bike racks, and security devices.[326][327]
