University of Maryland, The Founding Campus

LOCATED IN BALTIMORE,

UMB is The Founding Campus of the University System of Maryland.

Future Students

UMB is committed to interdisciplinary education.

Among our Graduate School and six professional schools, we offer incoming students a vast array of curriculum options to realize their life goals. Experts in admissions, housing, campus life, and financial aid are waiting to welcome you.

Current Students

A wealth of hands-on preceptor programs at UMB allow future physicians, nurses, lawyers, social workers, pharmacists, dentists, and allied health professionals to get a true feel for their chosen profession before graduation — studying here and abroad.

An emphasis on interprofessional education also creates a healthy respect for their future colleagues.

Researchers & Entrepreneurs

UMB’s world-renowned research team attracts nearly a half-billion dollars a year in external grants and contracts.

The 12-acre UM BioPark is home to a growing cluster of cutting-edge bioscience companies. UM Ventures, our joint technology commercialization effort with College Park, is accelerating the speed at which inventions move from bench to bedside.   

Partners

UMB’s commitment to collaboration extends to interactions with its community and business partners.

The founding campus of the University System of Maryland (USM), UMB also is a proud partner of the USM system and its related activities, including MPowering the State, a structured alliance with UM, College Park.

Alumni

Alumni are essential to UMB’s success.

Whether you're mentoring students, taking continuing education classes, supporting fundraising efforts, or attending campus functions, the UMB experience does not end with your diploma.

Faculty and Staff

Shared governance is a priority at UMB.

We believe in a shared responsibility among staff, faculty, administration, and students to promote a collaborative process whereby UMB and the faculty, staff, and students have regular dialog on important issues of concern to the parties. The common shared objective is to enhance the goals of the institution.

See the USM policy for specific examples.

Strategic Partnership

More than a hundred people turned out for a town hall on May 18 to offer their suggestions on goals that when finalized will form the foundation of UMB’s 2017-2021 strategic plan.
