The University of Maryland, College Park, the state’s flagship university, is committed to its fearless mission to discover new knowledge, Do Good and educate the next generation of 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, labs, and museums, such as NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center, the National Institute of Standards and Technology and the Phillips Collection. Collaborations with the University of Maryland, Baltimore through the University of Maryland Strategic Partnership also boost educational opportunities, research and combined degree programs. UMD is proud to be the nation’s first “Do Good” campus. The Do Good Initiative is a campus-wide effort to engage the entire student body in programs designed to ensure that every student who graduates from UMD will do so informed and motivated to Do Good in their communities and around the world. As part of the Do Good Initiative, UMD hosts the annual “Do Good Challenge,” which inspires and rewards students to become social entrepreneurs. Undergraduates can select from nearly 280 academic programs, or create their own as part of the Individual Studies Program. UMD provides countless out-of-classroom opportunities, more than 25 living-learning environments, and more than 400 study abroad programs to empower students to make a global impact. Half of UMD’s fall freshmen enroll in living-learning and other honors or scholars programs. The 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 is among the most diverse public flagships in the nation, recognizing that a diverse educational community is one of its greatest strengths. UMD’s faculty includes two Nobel laureates, three Pulitzer Prize winners and 56 members of the National Academies, who provide leadership in pivotal fields, such as quantum science, climate change, national security and visual art. UMD researchers are heavily involved in transdisciplinary environmental research, including work to restore and protect the nearby Chesapeake Bay.  New and upcoming buildings on campus enhance the university’s academic and research mission, including the Edward St. John Learning and Teaching Center, focused on a student-centered approach to instruction and discovery; A. James Clark Hall, designed to catalyze engineering innovation and bioengineering breakthroughs; the Brendan Iribe Center for Computer Science and Innovation, which will support the next wave of research in virtual and augmented reality; and the new Cole Field House, where innovators, scientists, clinicians and athletes will converge to advance the science of sport. 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 1,335-acre campus is about to be more connected than ever. With five new light rail stops on our around campus, the forthcoming Purple Line mass transit system will further connect UMD to all the region has to offer. UMD’s entire campus and its 14,000 trees are designated as an arboretum and botanical garden, and the Arbor Day Foundation has recognized UMD as a Tree Campus USA® for 10 consecutive years. Compelled by a fearless mission to serve the state and nation, the University of Maryland confronts the great societal issues of our time through an unparalleled academic and research enterprise.
