Each year, the University of Maryland, Baltimore (UMB) celebrates the achievements and successes of our students, faculty, staff, alumni, and philanthropic supporters and pays tribute to UMB’s 214-year history with a series of Founders Week events.

Founders Week is a wonderful opportunity to recognize our historic achievements, our future possibilities, and the invaluable role that our community, government, and business partners play in helping UMB fulfill its mission to improve the human condition and serve the public good of Maryland.

In 2021, our Founders Week theme was “Dreams in the Making,” as we celebrated the students from UMB’s six professional schools and interdisciplinary Graduate School whose scholarship and career aspirations are supported by the University community and dedicated philanthropists and donors.
