  • UMB Alumna sits down with the Pulse

    We hear from UMB alumna Kelsey Abernathy, PhD, and University of Maryland, College Park alumnus Dan Fucich, PhD, who leveraged The Grid’s resources to launch their company AlgenAir. The AlgenAir co-founders share their journey of going from an idea to a full-fledged company with products that use algae to convert carbon into oxygen in occupied spaces.

Welcome home, Alumni!

Opened in 1807, the University of Maryland, Baltimore (UMB) is Maryland’s premier public health, law, and human services university, dedicated to excellence in education, research, clinical care, and public service. And in those 200-plus years, UMB has graduated nearly 80,000 doctors, nurses, pharmacists, dentists, lawyers, social workers, and more!

Virtually every Marylander is helped in some way by the professionals we educate, the research we conduct, or the care, counsel, and service we provide — helped by all of you.

I know that you, our alumni, help to improve the public good far and wide, here in Maryland and around the world. And I am proud to be president of the institution you all represent.

Whether you graduated last year, 75 years ago, or somewhere in between, I’m glad that you are part of the UMB alumni family. And I hope that you all feel like you are part of something bigger than just the school from which you graduated. You are part of UMB. You ARE UMB.
