Catalyst Magazine

President’s Message

Together we have accomplished an amazing goal: The Catalyst Campaign was the most ambitious fundraising campaign in UMB's history with a goal of $750 million. I am proud to say that we not only met that goal, we also surpassed it nearly six months before the campaign’s end.

Community Engagement

Community engagement is vital to the health and well-being of every community. At UMB, we are deeply committed to improving quality of life in West Baltimore and the communities surrounding our campus.

UMB researchers played key roles throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, conducting research, clinical trials, and large-scale testing.

COVID-19 Response

UMB responded to the COVID-19 pandemic by redoubling our efforts to improve the human condition and serve the public good through education, research, clinical care, and service.

Student Scholarship

We are dedicated to attracting and educating the best and brightest scholars while making a UMB education affordable, regardless of a student’s race, ethnicity, or income.
