UMB/UMMC Community Engagement Strategic Plan

Visit the UMB/UMMC Partnership for West Baltimore Website and download the UMB/UMMC Community Engagement Strategic Plan.

The Office of Community Engagement (OCE) serves as UMB’s liaison to communities across the state of Maryland on behalf of the Office of the President.

Focusing on communities in West Baltimore that border the UMB campus, OCE develops and nurtures Universitywide partnerships with external stakeholders, including K-12 public schools, community organizations, nonprofits, and local businesses.

We assist UMB’s professional schools with the coordination of community engagement initiatives. Additionally, OCE coordinates faculty, staff, and student volunteer and service-learning initiatives to respond to needs identified by community partners.
