The University of Massachusetts Boston is a major coeducational public research university located in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts. It is part of the University of Massachusetts system. The University prides itself in maintaining a faculty that hold more Doctoral Degrees from Harvard University, and other Ivy League universities, than any other institution in the United States, including Harvard. (source located at www.umb.edu) Many students choose this university over its mother campus, UMass Amherst, due to its location, distinguished faculty, and political activism. The University is well-known for its political activism among students and faculty. The University is one of few schools that actually fund, through its student activities department, an anti-war organization that promotes the full end of Operation Iraqi Freedom. This organization is part of a regional program that works with campuses all over Boston; Massachusetts; and, New England. In the 1960s and 1970's, the University was site to some of America's greatest demonstrations against the Vietnam War. Likewise, the campus played a major role in advocating human and civil rights at a time when many universities closed their doors to activism. Today, UMass Boston works through many venues to promote social justice around the world.
