"For more than a century, UMass Lowell has been preparing students to work in the real world, solve real problems and help real people. The university began as the Lowell Normal School, a teaching college founded in 1894, and the Lowell Textile School, founded in 1895 to train technicians and managers for the textile industry. Over the next 75 years, both institutions extended their offerings to meet the growing needs of the region. Lowell State and Lowell Tech, as they were then known, merged in 1975 to form the University of Lowell. The campus became part of the University of Massachusetts system in 1991."

An elegant display in the Chancellor's Office chronicles the history of the schools that eventually merged to form the University of Massachusetts, Lowell.
