The University of Maryland, Baltimore County was born amid the turbulent swirl of the 1960s, and we had to cut our own path in a field of older, established institutions. From the beginning, we believed that a university could be innovative, interdisciplinary, and inclusive. We believed that ground-breaking research and a relentless focus on undergraduate success could go hand-in-hand. To this day, our faculty, staff, and students work and create outside traditional structures. UMBC had the first university research park in Maryland, dedicated to growing ideas into thriving businesses. MISSION UMBC is a dynamic public research university integrating teaching, research, and service to benefit the citizens of Maryland. UMBC emphasizes science, engineering, information technology, human services and public policy at the graduate level, and we contribute to the economic development of the State and the region through entrepreneurial initiatives, workforce training, K-16 partnerships, and technology commercialization in collaboration with public agencies and the corporate community. UMBC is dedicated to cultural and ethnic diversity, social responsibility, and lifelong learning.
