Savoy Magazine’s new “Power 300” summer issue highlights UMBC’s “inclusive excellence and STEM innovation at 50” in a vivid five-page education feature. UMBC is “a campus deeply committed to pushing America to change the culture of STEM to be more inclusive,” notes writer Meta Mereday, who describes how, over the past 50 years, UMBC has become “an innovation hub for STEM education and entrepreneurship” in the U.S.
As UMBC President Freeman Hrabowski describes in the article, UMBC’s commitment to inclusive excellence can be felt across the university. “We are a national model that shows how people of all races can work together and solve problems of humankind,” he shares. “Students of all backgrounds here at UMBC work together to address global challenges — from economic development and environmental research to cybersecurity and health disparities.”
