Institutional Partnerships and Engagement Events

The University System of Maryland Foundation cultivates partnerships and programs that benefit our institutional administrators, advancement and alumni relations staff, and board members. We regularly facilitate staff and board member retreats, and work to ensure that professional development programs are made available to staff members from across all of the USM's 12 member institutions. 

We are always looking for new ways to partner with our institutions and community members and welcome future opportunities to build stronger connections with our campuses.
