University of Maryland, Baltimore County (UMBC) is a top-ranked national university with an inclusive culture that connects innovative teaching and learning, research across disciplines, and civic engagement. Whatever your passion, at UMBC you’ll find a program that challenges and excites you and a community that supports you.

UMBC’s Office of Institutional Advancement supports the University’s mission and strategic priorities in a variety of ways, including telling the UMBC story through brand, stories and design; building partnerships with community stakeholders; and fundraising to support students, faculty, alumni and programs.

OIA launched a divisional Diversity and Inclusion Initiative in 2018. The goal of the initiative is for OIA to be more intentional in our efforts to reflect UMBC’s commitment to inclusive excellence. Engaging deeply in work to improve diversity and inclusion can be challenging, but doing this work thoughtfully and sincerely is essential to creating a truly supportive, positive work environment for all. In fact, it is in those challenging moments—such as when we’re confronting stereotypes or unconscious bias—that opportunities for growth present themselves.
