With a commitment to both its urban environment and real-world education, the University of Baltimore is known for its community involvement and its career-focused academic programs.

Located in Baltimore’s Mount Vernon cultural district, the University of Baltimore (UB) offers undergraduate, graduate, and professional programs in business, law, public affairs, and applied arts and sciences. The university is actively involved with its surrounding communities through its legal clinics and its centers, including the Schaefer Center for Public Policy; the Sayra and Neil Meyerhoff Center for Families, Children, and the Courts; the Center for Entrepreneurship and Innovation; the Bob Parsons Veterans Center; and the Jacob France Institute and its Baltimore Neighborhood Indicators Alliance.

Each of UB’s four schools—the School of Law, the College of Public Affairs, the Yale Gordon College of Arts and Sciences, and the Merrick School of Business—plays a vital role in the progress of the city and of the state. The university’s enrollment growth has been matched by its physical enhancements, including its award-winning, sustainably designed law center and a revitalized home for its arts and sciences and public affairs departments.
