-Randolph Bromery guided the campus through most of the difficult 1970s.  Prior to his appointment as Chancellor in 1971, Bromery served as a vice chancellor for student affairs and as a faculty member in the geosciences.  He enjoyed a successful career as a research scientist before coming to the university, noted for designing instruments for aeromagnetic surveying. 
- 
-The university became a more diverse institution under Bromery’s leadership. The ratio of undergraduate men to women shifted from 60:40 to 50:50 and the number of faculty of color increased. Bromery was instrumental in the formation of the Committee for the Collegiate Education of Black Students (CCEBS).  He also played a key role in securing a home for the archives of W.E.B. Du Bois and Horace Mann Bond, helping make the UMass library a repository for leading African-American thought.  In addition, the Five College consortium was initiated during Bromery’s tenure. 
- 
-Bromery was granted an honorary doctorate upon his resignation in 1979.  He has since served as president for several institutions of higher education in New England.
