At UMBC, we are connected by a shared sense of mission and vision. We combine grit and supportive community to reach excellence across the board — in the classroom, the lab, and the concert hall; on stage and on the court. At UMBC, we value each other as whole people, and we come together to learn, solve problems, create new things, and just have fun.
Our UMBC community redefines excellence in higher education through an inclusive culture that connects innovative teaching and learning, research across disciplines, and civic engagement. We will advance knowledge, economic prosperity, and social justice by welcoming and inspiring inquisitive minds from all backgrounds.
