Meehan is named chancellor

Abstract:
U.S. Rep. Martin T. Meehan was chosen Tuesday to become the next chancellor of the University of Massachusetts at Lowell, buoying local officials who believe the high-profile Democrat can revitalize the small campus and the Merrimack Valley with his political and fund-raising skills.

Meehan emerged from an initial field of nearly 80 candidates, dominated by out-of-state academics, by promising university leaders that he would devote much of his time to raising money, particularly to fund teaching and scholarship on nanotechnology, biomanufacturing and several other new sciences that are the focus of UMass-Lowell's development plans, according to university and local officials.

Meehan will arrive just as the fruits of his legislative efforts are becoming apparent on campus. The university is planning the construction of an $80 million bio- and nanotechnology research center, part of a broader $266 million initiative to renovate dozens of buildings, classrooms, and laboratories.
