National research universities play a critical role in advancing our health, security and quality of life by developing comprehensive, interdisciplinary solutions to global problems, and by stimulating jobs and economic development. Strategically located inside the Capital Beltway, the University of Maryland has extensive collaborations with federal agencies and private corporations that position our University as a national leader on the great societal issues of our time, including global climate change, big data, bioengineering, language and linguistic research, and cybersecurity. We can truly be considered the nation’s research university.

Dear University of Maryland community,

Welcome to another year of opportunity, for each of us individually and as a community. Our campus continues to make strides in the excellence of our learning and teaching; the ascendancy of our research enterprise; the translation of our work into societal benefit; the redevelopment of our physical and virtual campus; and the transformation of our surrounding region.

Reflection, Dialogue, and Action

​Across ​our ​large and decentralized ​University, there are ​actions ​already underway​, with ​​more planned​ as ​described ​below. ​Yet ​no administrative office, or new initiative, ​will ​improve our campus climate without every member of our community playing a part. We ​all need to​ ask what we can do ​each ​day t​o stand for ​our values. ​ ​

UMD's commitment to international collaborations and the international community on campus

I write to reaffirm the University of Maryland's commitment to international collaborations and support for all faculty, students, visiting scholars, and staff on our campus from all countries, including China. American research universities, a landmark of American civilization, have thrived because of our core values of openness, academic freedom, and inclusiveness.
