Survey for “Campus Continuum at UMass Dartmouth”
Copyright 2007

Thank you for taking our brief confidential survey, designed to assess your interest in moving to "Campus Continuum at UMass Dartmouth"--a community of active, mature life-long learners that the school is considering adding to its 710 acre campus.

Based on the outcome of this survey, UMass Dartmouth and Campus Continuum will assess the feasibility of bringing this unique project to fruition with the amenities you prefer most. Your participation assures that you'll receive updates as development plans unfold so that you won't miss out on getting your preferred home-with no obligation on your part. Your name will not be sold to other organizations.

What we are proposing

"Campus Continuum at UMass Dartmouth" is designed to offer a new and stimulating phase of life. Residents will have access to the programs and facilities of the University, as well as seminars and other programs they organize themselves. They will be encouraged to engage in volunteer opportunities both on and off campus. Depending on their interests and backgrounds, some residents may advise student clubs and organizations, act as tutors, part-time lecturers, mentors, or career advisors, and be an enthusiastic audience for music, theater and sports events.

A Dean of Programs will coordinate relations between the University and residents, develop additional seminars and special programs, assist in matching people with courses and special interests, and coordinate social, travel and educational opportunities.

The proposed community can offer a variety of attractive residential options with condominium or co-op ownership. It can offer active adults with shared interests a new sense of adventure--and fun--with expanded lifestyle offerings, gracious living units, a club house, and the opportunity to make many interesting new friends.
