2024 Founders Week

UMB Founders Week 2024 | Oct. 14-17

Each year, the University of Maryland, Baltimore (UMB) celebrates our students, faculty, and staff and pays tribute to UMB’s 217-year history with a series of Founders Week events.

Founders Week is a wonderful opportunity to recognize our historic achievements, groundbreaking work, and the invaluable role that our colleagues and partners have in helping UMB fulfill its mission to improve the human condition and serve the public good of Maryland and society at-large.

This year, we will celebrate our outstanding Founders Week Award winners — David J. Ramsay Entrepreneur of the Year, Researcher of the Year, Public Servant of the Year, Educator of the Year, and Student of the Year — during the Awards Recognition and Reception on Oct. 14 at the M&T Bank Exchange at the France-Merrick Performing Arts Center.
