Welcome from the Provost

Welcome to this website and the process of building Our UMBC: A Strategic Plan for Advancing Excellence. The UMBC community opens the next chapter in campus strategic planning as we approach UMBC’s 50th anniversary in 2016, offering a unique opportunity to reflect on accomplishments while envisioning strategies to advance excellence at UMBC and support future development of the campus.

‘Our UMBC’ is about the future of all students, faculty, staff, alumni, and partners, so it is vital to have everyone’s attention and participation during the process. There will be many opportunities to be involved, including serving on planning groups and advisory groups, participating through shared governance, attending campus community updates, or simply staying connected through this website. It is important to understand what a broad range of community members think as we work together to understand what we have accomplished in UMBC’s first 50 years and what UMBC can achieve next.
