The University of Massachusetts Global, which was previously known as Brandman University, today announced David Andrews as its new chancellor.
Andrews is the second chancellor in the history of Irvine-based UMass Global, having served in an interim role since May 2022. Prior Chancellor Gary Brahm in May retired from UMass Global, a private nonprofit university formerly owned by Chapman University.
Andrews will develop a strategy for UMass Global to grow its enrollment of working adults in New England and throughout the United States and abroad.
“Without question, the university will soon emerge as the leading open-access institution of service to the traditionally underserved,” Andrews said in a statement.
Andrews served as president of National University from 2016 to 2021, overseeing the introduction of National’s first doctoral degrees and grew enrollment from about 30,000 to some 45,000 students. He previously was the dean at the School of Education at Johns Hopkins University 2010 through 2016.
UM GLOBAL offers undergraduate, graduate, credential and certificate programs for 90 career paths to nearly 23,000 students at 25 physical campuses in California and Washington, as well as online.
