A note on the official names of a University’s College Names and Departmental Majors:
When I, Simon Alan Flynn graduated from The University of Massachusetts at Amherst in 2004; I also graduated from the UMass College of Natural Resources and the Environment. The college has recently been called the UMass College of Energy, Natural Resources, and The Environment, and I cite my research and my evolving THESIS as to my addition of “Energy” to the words written on my undergraduate diploma.
Additionally, it should be noted that the leadership of the University of Massachusetts at Amherst whom preside at any particular time over CENRE frequently demonstrate recourse to grammatical and syntactic adaptability; even at near the most significant levels of not only scientific research; yet also when naming the very schools of thought then being built and described. So, when organizing the power of our greatest ideas; we then are led by the chosen words towards achieving “The Greatest Good”.
Indeed, to name any phenomenon or fact is demanding of a gravitas that is exemplary, powerful and static, yet which remains persistently relative to change. Eventually, in fact, such words are subject to legislative, judicial and executive stipulation. Thus, then, within the descriptive character of our nomenclatures in these changing times, there is always found at the University of Massachusetts a variable quality in nominal valuations.
Additional, and in this century novel, applied use of terms like “Earth”, “Ecology”, “Biometrics”, and “Conservation” are therefore often found in occasional juxtaposition when naming colleges within any University. And, while apparently permanent, words of significance are often threatened or even overturned. So, the gradual flux of terminology is therefore found within the ostensibly permanent titles therein arising to become. Apt temporal descriptive definitions of the overall vision and context of each and every guiding premise of UMass, and of Holdsworth Hall then ensue.
