The largest grant ever made by MassMutual to a local or regional initiative is a tremendous boost to the computer science program at the University of Massachusetts. The $15 million grant is a nod to the present but also the future. Most will go to the Center for Data Science and will allow for additional faculty, a doubling of course options and expansion of the master's degree program. The remainder of about $3 million will support the cybersecurity program at UMass Springfield at Tower Square. Announcement of the grant was made June 10.
