UMass president Robert Caret starts statewide bus tour

Robert Caret’s four-day, 500-mile tour starts Monday with jaunts to Springfield, Holyoke, Amherst and Lowell. He’s scheduled to be in Boston and Gloucester on Tuesday; Boston, Wareham, Barnstable and Dartmouth on Wednesday; and New Bedford, Fall River and Worcester on Thursday.

The tour marks the 150th anniversary of the signing of the Morrill Land Grant Act, which resulted in the founding in 1863 of Massachusetts Agricultural College, now known as UMass-Amherst.

Caret is scheduled to visit alumni startups, business incubators, research centers and other key drivers of the state economy.
