President Jarrell's Message

Interim President Bruce Jarrell

Dear UMB Community:

It’s hard to believe that for many of you, your time as a student at the University of Maryland, Baltimore (UMB) will soon end. Commencement celebrates the culmination of a lot of hard work and, yes, the beginning of much more. On May 18, 2023, we’ll send our graduates out into the world to fulfill the mission for which we’ve prepared them: to improve the human condition and serve the public good. 

This year’s Universitywide commencement ceremony will be held at Chesapeake Employers Insurance Arena on the campus of the University of Maryland, Baltimore County. Individual school/department ceremonies will be held on the days surrounding the Universitywide event.

More detailed information about commencement and school/department ceremonies, as well as the announcement of our keynote speaker, will follow as we get closer to the date. Please visit this website, which will serve as a repository of information to plan your celebration including the time and location of school and department ceremonies. 

Congratulations — and best of luck to the Class of 2023!


Bruce E. Jarrell, MD, FACS
