The University of Maryland plays a critical role in every part of the state’s economy. Each year, our flagship institution graduates thousands of students that strengthen the workforce as scientists, scholars, engineers, entrepreneurs and innovators. We attract investment, launch successful startups and stimulate job creation. We share our expertise with businesses and communities on important issues such as health care, education, and the environment. We are proud to serve our state.
To foster the education, critical thinking and intellectual growth of students, to create and apply new knowledge via research, scholarship and the creative arts, to improve the surrounding world, we must first foster an inclusive community of global citizens committed to academic freedom. We are dedicated to act with entrepreneurial spirit, embrace the power of technology, operate with fiscal responsibility and administrative efficiency, foster transformational change and create a vibrant surrounding community.
