Statement from UMass Dartmouth Acting Chancellor Gerry Kavanaugh regarding Patriots Day filming

«After discussing the situation with students, staff, faculty, and other university
stakeholders, we have decided to decline the request of CBS Films to use UMass
Dartmouth as a site for filming Patriots Day. We have concluded that the production
activities would be too disruptive to our campus community. We are hopeful that the
movie does justice to the many courageous victims of the Boston Marathon tragedy and
their families, as well as the public safety officers who demonstrated such selfless
dedication to their duty.»
