Faculty Support

Renowned for excellence in teaching and research, UMD faculty are tackling local and global challenges. UMD provides a natural laboratory for issues that include food safety and security, renewable energy, healthy urban and rural environments, and sustainable use of natural resources, like forests, lakes and rivers.

These talented scholars provide opportunities for students to explore their interests and passions, broaden their perspectives, and consider how they will make the world a better place. Working closely with communities in our region and beyond, UMD faculty are forming new partnerships that find solutions by including all voices in the drive to discover. Campaign gifts help UMD strengthen our pool of talented scholars who provide the highest quality educational experience for UMD students and conduct innovative research that address challenges at home and abroad.


Your gift to faculty and research:

  • Recruits top scholars who foster discovery in the classroom and advance critical research

  • Creates more endowed chairs and professorships to reward junior faculty and retain faculty stars
