The University of Maryland, Baltimore (UMB) Center for Violence Prevention seeks to intervene, reduce, and respond to violence in our city, bringing together the expertise of the R Adams Cowley Shock Trauma Center at the University of Maryland Medical Center and the University of Maryland schools of medicine, social work, and law.

The center seeks to bridge the activities of those across UMB and in the community in an interdisciplinary, collaborative fashion to conduct community-based participatory research, provide creative and impactful education, and inform and advocate for policies that strengthen our communities to prevent violence and trauma.

The center is a collaborative effort of UMB and the R Adams Cowley Shock Trauma Center.
