Now, in 2014, as the Town of Dartmouth is celebrating its 350th anniversary, UMass Dartmouth will celebrate its 50th. To commemorate this moment, UMass Dartmouth Chancellor Divina Grossman will be joined by students, faculty, and staff, alongside civic, business and community leaders for a photo this Friday, June 13, at 9:30 a.m. at the Claire T. Carney Library patio. Following the photo, birthday cake will be enjoyed to celebrate the anniversary.
Three displays containing historical documents and items commemorating the 1964 groundbreaking will also be available for viewing in the Library lobby. Additionally, Chancellor Grossman will announce several celebratory events and activities that will be taking place in the coming months.
