Led by President Jay A. Perman, MD, the University of Maryland, Baltimore includes the schools of medicine, law, dentistry, pharmacy, social work, nursing, and the Graduate School. Founded in 1807 along a ridge in what was then called Baltimore Town, today this 71-acre research and technology complex encompasses 65 buildings in West Baltimore near the Inner Harbor. The University is also a major biomedical research institution. The 12-acre BioPark will boast 1.8 million square feet of lab and office space in 12 buildings plus garage parking and landscaped parks at final build-out.
In fall 2000, the University System of Maryland introduced a new concept in advanced education: the Universities at Shady Grove (USG)—a collaboration of nine public degree-granting institutions that brings some of the top programs from across the state to one convenient facility in Montgomery County.
USG is designed for students who are professionally focused; who want to fast track their degree. Everything about USG is aimed at helping students complete their degree and start their career.
