UMass Amherst Chancellor Subbaswamy Announces Resignation – Boston News, Weather, Sports

Kumble Subbaswamy, Chancellor of the University of Massachusetts Amherst, who has contributed to a dramatic rise in the school’s academic profile during his decade in office, announced Thursday that he will be retiring next June.

“It has been a privilege to be Chancellor of this great university,” Subbaswamy said in a statement released by the university. “I will forever treasure the support and friendship of the faculty, staff, students and alumni I have come to know over the past decade and am grateful for all we have accomplished together.”

Since he arrived on campus in July 2012, the university’s graduation rate has improved, the student body has become more diverse, innovative research has increased and fundraising has reached record levels, the statement said.

“Chancellor Subbaswamy’s leadership of UMass Amherst over the past decade has been truly extraordinary by any measure,” said UMass President Marty Meehan. “The university has grown in influence and national prestige under his adept leadership while always focusing on student success.”

Subbaswamy said he will not let up in his final year.

“Over the next year, I will remain focused on fulfilling our mission as the Commonwealth’s flagship campus,” he said.

Subbaswamy, a physicist, holds degrees from Bangalore and Delhi Universities in India and a PhD from Indiana University. Prior to UMass, he was a provost at the University of Kentucky and previously worked at Indiana, the University of Miami and the University of California, Irvine.

UMass Amherst has a total of more than 32,000 undergraduate and graduate students.
