Ever upbeat and enthusiastic. I have seen him describe the endless construction on campus and its inevitable parking challenges as “progress in the making.” And I have seen him take the high ground in professionalism and dignity when career setbacks would have made the average executive cry “foul!”
The students love him. The community respects him. And his tall physique and booming voice make everyone stop and stand at attention.
Dr. Keith Motley, Chancellor of the University of Massachusetts Boston Campus is a TRUE friend of the Multicultural Symposium Series and my various business endeavors. He is a FRIEND to the small business community and goes out of his way to support worthy causes.
We have held our annual Multicultural Conferences on his campus since 2010 (following a strong partnership with Bentley University) and the partnership between the university and my business is anchored in the dedication and commitment of Dr. Motley.
Dr. Motley will bring Greetings during the November 6th Multicultural Conference in his unique and energizing way to let us know we are welcome to his campus.
State Street Corporation is the LEAD SPONSOR of the Multicultural Symposium Series.
J. Keith Motley, Ph.D., is the eighth chancellor of the University of Massachusetts Boston. He leads an institution with approximately 15,000 undergraduate and graduate students, a full-time and part-time faculty of more than 900, and a $294 million annual budget.
In addition to representing UMass Boston locally, nationally, and internationally, Chancellor Motley provides direct oversight of a four-pronged strategic plan for the university whose stated goals are to increase student access and engagement; attract, develop, and sustain highly effective faculty; create a physical environment that supports teaching, learning, and research; and enhance campus-community engagement through improved operational structures.
In support of this strategic initiative, Motley is also guiding a 25-year master plan for the physical plant of the university that will significantly enhance the face of the campus and its layout on the scenic Columbia Point Peninsula in a way that invites and welcomes the Greater Boston community to interact with its public university.
This project will also include the construction of the Edward M. Kennedy Institute for the United States Senate, which the late senator requested to be located on the UMass Boston campus next to the JFK Library. The institute will be dedicated to educating the general public, students, teachers, new senators, and senate staff about the role and importance of the senate. Chancellor Motley has also overseen considerable growth in UMass Boston’s faculty research spending, which has increased to more than $46 million in 2008-2009, and an expansion of the university’s private development funding, which has increased by nearly 200 percent under his leadership.
Dr. Motley holds bachelor’s and master’s degrees from Northeastern University and a Doctor of Philosophy degree from Boston College. He also holds an honorary degree awarded by Northeastern University. He is a graduate of the University of Pittsburgh’s Upward Bound Program. He is married to Angela Motley and is the proud father of Keith Allyn, Kayla Iman, and Jordan Kiara.
We hope that YOU will attend this upcoming conference. It will be held at the University of Massachusetts - Boston Campus on Thursday November 6, 2014 from 8am to 3pm. Tickets are only $99, which includes a 12 month membership in the Multicultural Symposium Series.
