The future of higher education is one in which great institutions will thrive by building deeper and more strategic partnerships. These partnerships will enable institutions like the University of Maryland to positively impact people around the globe. This is an imperative of a world-class research institution that must not only discover new knowledge and educate the next generation of scholars, innovators, and entrepreneurs, but also to share and scale those discoveries and breakthroughs.

Along with building and sustaining mutually-beneficial partnerships, the University of Maryland and its affiliated stakeholders require greater investments from those who benefit from it to nurture, prepare, and launch new ideas, technologies, and ventures.
