Our vision: West Baltimore neighborhoods are safe, vibrant, and inclusive communities that promote the happiness, health, and wealth of all. As a public university in Maryland, UMB is committed to directly improving quality of life in its surrounding communities. One way UMB honors this commitment is by providing community outreach programs that benefit from its teaching, research, and clinical care. Community engagement works to leverage UMB’s economic resources and human capital to engage with the community through direct service and systemic change to improve quality of life in West Baltimore and beyond.

Engagement in Baltimore The UMB Community Engagement Center, located in the Poppleton neighborhood, adjacent to campus, provides direct health, employment, legal, and social services to West Baltimore residents, and works with them on neighborhood-strengthening advocacy projects. UMB CURE Scholars is a long-term mentoring program designed to excite West Baltimore middle and high school students about science and begin preparing them for rewarding careers in research and health care. The UM School of Social Work operates Promise Heights, a network of partnerships and services intended to stabilize and strengthen families in a high-poverty West Baltimore neighborhood and help children achieve academic success. The Partnership with West Baltimore is a collaboration between UMB and the University of Maryland Medical Center designed to improve population health, stimulate economic and community development, boost academic achievement, and nurture community connections.

The Office of Community Engagement (OCE) serves as UMB's liaison to communities across the state of Maryland on behalf of the Office of the President. Focusing on communities in West Baltimore that border the UMB campus, OCE develops and nurtures University wide partnerships with external stakeholders, including K-12 public schools, community organizations, non-profits, and local businesses. We assist UMB's professional schools with the coordination of community engagement initiatives. Additionally, OCE coordinates faculty, staff, and student volunteer and service-learning initiatives to respond to needs identified by community partners
