UMBC turned 50 on September 19, 2016. This special year was a once-in-a-generation opportunity to show the impact of our exceptional community. We invite all of our alumni, students, faculty, staff, and partners to stand up proudly and be recognized as pioneers in building a public university that is nationally known for excellence. With help from you and other members of our community, UMBC will set a strong foundation for the next 50 years!
