University of Massachusetts Boston

University of Massachusetts Boston, or UMass Boston is a university in Boston, Massachusetts in the northeastern United States. It is part of the University of Massachusetts system.

The school was established in 1964 and is part of the Greater Boston Urban Education Collaborative[?], but over time has absorbed and merged with other schools dating back to 1852.

An 818-member faculty serves a student body of about 13,300. The university relocated from downtown Boston to its current campus on Columbia Point in the Dorchester[?] neighborhood of Boston in 1974. The university shares Columbia Point with the John F. Kennedy Library and Museum and the Massachusetts State Archives.

The school colors are blue and white, and the school mascot is The Beacon.
