Description

Since arriving at UMBC . . . I have come to appreciate the unusual combination of factors at work here: the enormous talents of the people, who care about our students; our focused academic programs, interdisciplinary strengths, and commitment to linking research and teaching; our youth and evolving status; and our medium size, ensuring us a critical mass of people and programs and a campus community where people know each other by name, and can feel special. . . . These same factors also allow us to have a distinctive vision for UMBC�s future. We will continue to strengthen and emphasize our arts and sciences programs, for the benefit of all our students. We will be a national leader in educating students in science and engineering, including minorities and women. And we will continue to focus on issues of diversity.�
