Dear UMD Community,
We are pleased to announce that six professors from the University of Maryland, Baltimore (UMB) and the University of Maryland, College Park (UMCP) have been named MPower Professors. Three professors from each university received this distinction form the University of Maryland Strategic Partnership: MPowering the State (MPower), which recognizes, incentivizes, and fosters collaborations between our faculty.
Please join us in congratulation these innovative researchers and outstanding leaders who were carefully chosen from a strong and competitive pool of nominations spanning both universities. The six selected for this honor are working across disciplines to address the most complex challenges facing society today. These new MPower Professors are bridging research and scholarship between institutions to foster innovation that will impact people in Maryland, across the country, and around the world. Each professor will receive $150,000, allocated over three years, to apply to their salary or support supplemental research activities.
