Dean's Council - Moving medicine forward

UMass Dean's Council logo

Donors who maximize the potential of collaboration and fund important needs within each of UMass Chan Medical School's three graduate schools make up the Dean's Council. They are the visionary UMass Chan alumni and T.H. Chan School of Medicine parents who support our mission to advance the health and well-being of the people of the commonwealth and beyond. 

Through their generous annual gifts, our Dean's Council members:

  • support students and programs that will advance the health and well-being of others;
  • maximize their ability to support areas within the Medical School that mean the most to them;
  • join like-minded alumni and family who strive to make a difference in medicine; and
  • demonstrate that they understand the importance of funding the people and projects of UMass Chan.

"It's part of our values to give back ... We're so glad to be able to support future physicians in this way."
