Service and Impact
to the State

You are here

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.

Our University has ​voiced​ strong opposition to H.R.1, the Tax Cut​s​ and Jobs Act, because it discourages participation in college, makes it more expensive for low- and middle-income students to attend, undermines the financial stability of universities, and—by swelling the national debt​​—impairs the Federal government's ability to invest in higher education, research, and economic growth.
