TO ENHANCE ACADEMIC DISTINCTION AND BOLSTER OUR LEADING-EDGE RESEARCH ENTERPRISE

Letter from Wallace D. Loh


The University of Maryland stands as one of the premier public research universities in the nation. We have great faculty, great students and great academic, research and athletic programs.

And we aim to grow even greater.

We seek to discover and advance new knowledge that will solve some of the most pressing challenges of our time.

We will inspire Maryland pride, harnessing our academic and research prowess to drive economic prosperity and improve the human condition, as called for by our land-grant mission.

We will transform the student experience with technology-enhanced education and real-world experiences to prepare students for 21st century success.

And we will turn their imagination into innovation. Our students will become the next generation of innovators and entrepreneurs. They will create the ideas, technology and organizations to benefit all of us. They will go forth to “do well” and to “do good” in the world.

We build their dreams—our dreams—one scholarship, one faculty member, one hands-on experience at a time.

I encourage you to join in on our ascendant journey. Together, we will build our Fearless future.



Sincerely,

Wallace D. Loh

President
