STATE HOUSE, BOSTON, OCT. 12, 2017....The interim chancellor at UMass-Boston plans to step down at the end of this academic year and hopes the urban campus will be able to secure a "world-class leader" to take over in time for the 2018-2019 academic year.

In a letter, Barry Mills said the campus was making progress on numerous major challenges - its budget, construction projects, and the launch of the first dorms on campus - and cited the "inherent advantages" of having a permanent chancellor in place.

"While much work lies ahead, I believe that we are well positioned in each of these areas, and I am very optimistic about where we are heading," he wrote.
