Employee Comment

I appreciate the authentic commitment (from top leaders) to UMBC faculty and staff and students as a COMMUNITY, a family. The President and Provost are brilliant, innovative, and have curated incredible leadership beneath them. The bench here is DEEP. I trust my supervisor and her supervisor and his supervisor. It has been such an honor to work here in this environment.

President's Statement

As a campus, we are a community, we are inclusive, we are unapologetically aspirational, we aim high and we encourage our students to do so, we work hard to get there, and we punch above our weight. We aim to be what America wants to be.
