The University of Massachusetts Dartmouth is a multi-campus university, part of the statewide university system of the University of Massachusetts. The main campus is located in North Dartmouth, Massachusetts, in the center of the South Coast region, between the cities of New Bedford to the east and Fall River to the west. The University, also known as UMass-Dartmouth or "UMD", has a student body of 8,756 students, which includes undergraduates, graduate students, and continuing education students. As of Spring 2008, there are approximately 4,173 students living on campus. It offers more than 61 undergraduate programs of study and 19 graduate programs, and has more than 300 full-time faculty. With an endowment of over $30 million, the university has set the goal of becoming a Carnegie Research I institution by the start of the next decade. UMass Dartmouth specializes in training engineers, health care workers, marine scientists, teachers, performing and visual artists, and graduates in the liberal arts. UMD also has one of the nation's most extensive undergraduate and graduate programs in Portuguese language and literary studies, offering both a BA and an MA in Portuguese Studies, as well as a new Ph.D. program in Luso-Afro-Brazilian Studies and Theory. The university also has a Center for Portuguese Studies and Culture, which sponsors numerous publication series, as well as international conferences in Portuguese and Portuguese-American studies. The university is home to the Ferreira-Mendes Portuguese-American Archives, located in a special section of the Claire T. Carney Library, and the UMass-Dartmouth Summer Program in Portuguese. The school also proposed to host the University of Massachusetts School of Law, as the trustees of the state's university system voted during 2004 to purchase the nearby Southern New England School of Law, an unaccredited private institution. As of early 2008 this has not taken place, but may in the future. In June 2008 the University of Massachusetts Board of Trustees approved the creation of a new School of Education, Public Policy and Civic Engagement. Since 1992, UMass Dartmouth has sponsored the Cape Cod Community College as an affiliate.
