UMass President Caret stops in Worcester on statewide tour
By Bryan Goodchild UMass Medical School Communications
President Caret, who is traveling in a donated bus adorned with University of Massachusetts banners, said he was pleased with the trip so far. “People have been receptive to the message that education needs more support and we’ve been very receptive to listening to them with lots of good ideas as to how we can do a better job for different parts of the state,” said Caret.
Caret said the Medical School is a great example of how the University can serve “as an economic hub, an educational hub and a social hub for the region. What we’re asking on this tour is, in parts of the state where that is not happening as well, how can we help make it happen.”
