UMass Lowell to boost honors program

Move meant to lure top students

University of Massachusetts Lowell trustees are expected to give final approval on Wednesday to a proposal that will elevate the status of the school’s honors program to what is known as an honors college.

“This is an effort on our part to attract the very best students, the most talented academically, not only from Massachusetts, but from across the country,” said Martin T. Meehan, chancellor of the 17,000-student campus, the state’s second-largest public higher education institution, behind the flagship in Amherst.
