This university—your university—has been different from the start. Fifty years in, the question remains: what can each of us do to ensure that UMBC continues to do great things?
As we reflect on the thousands of relationships and stories that have defined UMBC, we have noticed a persistent theme: when there is good work to be celebrated, our community rallies. And when there is a need, our community responds.
Giving regularly to UMBC makes our grit and greatness possible. Monthly and yearly gifts help us award scholarships, welcome new students to campus and connect them with their departments, send winning teams to tournaments, and respond to urgent needs from our students to keep them on track for graduation. Alumni giving—at any level—shows the world that a UMBC education is something to be proud of, and increases the value of every degree.
We each have our part to play. For fifty years we have called on our grit to do great things. Now we’re calling on you. We invite you to renew your commitment to UMBC, and to help sustain the legacy of inclusive excellence that we have built together.
