Draft Report
 From the UMass Boston Committee
on the Exploration of the New School
for Global Inclusion and Social


At the initiative of Provost Winston Langley a committee of faculty and staff were convened to explore the establishment of a new school with a focus on globalization at the University of Massachusetts Boston to respond to UMB’s ambitions to be a world-class teaching and research university in the 21st century. The charge to the committee recognized the increasing role of globalization, its impact upon higher education and its opportunity to advance the mission of UMB in the years to come.

The School for Global Inclusion and Social Development will reach out and embrace interested faculty, students and staff of the University through the use of joint appointments, shared research efforts, collaborative teaching, graduate assistance options and integrated programs in teaching, research and capacity development that will cross college, institute and center boundaries in a collaborative fashion.
