The University of Maryland (UMD), the State's flagship university, inspires students’ ideas and sparks their passions while bringing them deeply into the life-changing process of discovery, innovation, and entrepreneurship. Living-learning environments, hands-on research, and experiential learning expand on classroom study.

Collaborations across disciplines enable the understanding of complex national and global problems like cybersecurity and climate change. International study and diversity help our graduates become global citizens. As the only public research university inside Washington, D.C.'s beltway, UMD gives students unparalleled opportunities to work with nearby federal agencies and labs, such as NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center and the National Institute of Standards and Technology. The Global Semester in Washington, D.C., program offers seminars and internationally-related internships, and the Federal Semester program combines targeted studies with internships that pair students and government policy-makers. New collaborations with the University of Maryland, Baltimore will boost educational opportunities, research, and combined degree programs.

UMD students are inventing tomorrow’s technologies and finding solutions to long-standing problems. In 2013, an award-winning student program—Food Recovery Network—went national with its first large grant from the Sodexo Foundation. Created to safely provide leftover food to hungry people, it now has programs at 53 colleges in 20 states. UMD students recently beat out 100 premier institutions to win the inaugural U.S. Major League Hacking Championship, winning for new apps and technologies created, or “hacked,” from scratch in weekend-long events.

UMD's faculty includes Nobel laureates, Pulitzer Prize winners, and members of the National Academies. Students learn from world-class experts and share classes with exceptionally motivated, high-achieving peers. Undergraduates select from more than 100 majors and 10 living-learning programs offering 25 study options. UMD helped pioneer living-learning programs, including launching the nation’s first program devoted to entrepreneurship in 2001 and the first focused on cybersecurity in 2013.

Half of UMD's fall freshmen enroll in these and other Honors or Scholars programs. UMD’s Honors College challenges the most talented students in small seminars with like-minded classmates. College Park Scholars, an innovative living-learning program, engages students and faculty in learning beyond the classroom around a variety of topic areas. UMD's entrepreneurial faculty provide leadership in pivotal fields, such as climate change, national security, foreign languages, nanotechnology, energy storage, health care IT, food safety, and quantum science (led by a Nobel laureate and housed in one of the most advanced research facilities in the world). Since the 1960's, researchers at UMD have partnered with NASA to conduct space missions, including Voyagers I and II and the recent Deep Impact missions to nearby comets. UMD researchers are heavily involved in trans-disciplinary environmental research, including work to restore and protect the nearby Chesapeake Bay.

Only nine miles from the White House, the Smithsonian, Library of Congress, and National Archives, and near the metropolitan and educational attractions of Baltimore, the lush 1250-acre campus mixes advanced labs and educational facilities with state-of-the-art recreational opportunities. UMD and its 9,000 trees are designated as an arboretum and botanical garden. The U.S. EPA has recognized UMD as one of the nation's most sustainable campuses.

UMD is recognized for providing outstanding education at an affordable price. UMD's financial aid programs work overtime to maintain affordability: One provides a zero-debt-at-graduation opportunity for students from poverty-level circumstances, while another caps the accumulated debt for seniors from moderate-income families.
