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.

Public Statement of UMD

The University of Maryland joins other member institutions of the Association of American Universities and the Association of Public and Land-grant Universities in expressing concern over the temporary banning from entry into the U.S. of visa and green card holders of seven mostly Muslim countries. The potential for negatively impacting the educational and research missions of our campus is significant. We are currently assessing how this executive order may affect the students and scholars at our campus who come from these countries.

True to Our Values

Dear University of Maryland community,

We begin this new semester as a rift grows in our nation. An "us-vs.-them" mind set prevails. We talk more about our differences than about our common ground.

Education, "dreamers", and DACA

This is a time of grave uncertainty and vulnerability for our students on DACA status. They deserve our support and our country needs them.

Sexual Assault Prevention Task Force

A new "Joint President/Senate Task Force on Sexual Assault Prevention" will propose a comprehensive strategy to address this important issue. Its recommendations are due by March 31, 2017.

Post-election Unity in Diversity

The divisive election is over, but the mission and core values of our University remain unchanged. 

The education that we provide is the great equalizer of conditions in our democracy, a passport to social and economic mobility. The research, innovation, and public service that we do are essential to the well-being, prosperity, and security of the people of our state and the nation. 

Launch of the “Do Good” Initiative

I am pleased to announce the launch of a campus-wide “Do Good” initiative.

This initiative aims to educate and inspire a Do Good generation of students to apply their education, skills, and values to make an impact on the great societal challenges of our time — such as poverty, health inequity, injustice, food and water security, and climate change. It is rooted in our land-grant mission of putting knowledge into practice for social and economic betterment.
