NTA Director to receive Honorary Doctorate from UMass

At UMass Dartmouth's 110th Commencement, May 23rd President of EY Technologies Gerald Mauretti will receive an honorary doctorate.

Gerald Mauretti, UMass Dartmouth Textile Engineering Class of 1965, is the President and founder of EY Technologies. In 2005, Mauretti received the singular honor of being named World President of the Textile Institute International. The organization, incorporated in England by Royal Charter in 1925, has members in more than 90 countries, covering all sectors and disciplines of the textile industry.

EY TEchnologies is a specialty materials company located in the Fall River (Massachusetts) Industrial Park. He has international experience in the development, marketing and manufacturing of technical fiber-based materials and yarns used for industrial products and composites.

He is a business and community volunteer in education, economic and workforce development. He is the current Chair of the UMass Dartmouth Foundation and Vice Chair of the UMass Advanced Technology and Manufacturing Center Outside Advisory Board. He has, since 1999, served as a Director of the National Textile Association.

UMass Dartmouth magazine profiled Mr. Mauretti in fall, 2006. "We're in a global economy," he said. "The manufacturing base keeps moving. It's no longer the function of the U.S. to be the manufacturer."

As the textile industry continuously and radically evolves in the private sector, so does UMass Dartmouth's role in the global transition to advanced materials. Sometimes those materials are synthetic and other times they are biological, giving rise to cross-campus, interdisciplinary collaborations among textile engineers, chemists, biologists, computer scientists and others. Mr. Mauretti has been a suppoter of the university's evolution in this area.

In constant search of what he describes as "the whiz bang", Mauretti stays connected to those scientists at his alma mater and also does his part to support the campus' continued development as an economic engine.
