Externally, Academic Affairs is the point of contact with the University System of Maryland (USM) and, through USM, other regulatory and legislative bodies on issues relating to faculty affairs, student affairs, and academic policy. Internally, it is the point of contact with the University's six professional schools — dentistry, law, medicine, nursing, pharmacy, and social work — on faculty and student affairs and academic policy. It also provides traditional faculty and academic services.

Guided by UMB’s core values, the Office of Accountability and Compliance is committed to fostering a transparent culture within which members of the University community are encouraged and feel supported in taking responsibility for seeking guidance and assistance in addressing accountability and compliance concerns.

The Office of Communications and Public Affairs is dedicated to promoting the University of Maryland, Baltimore (UMB) and telling its remarkable stories. We provide media relations, branding, strategic planning, writing, editing, design, marketing, special event planning, and web communications services Universitywide.

We Focus on Strategy

We will help your team set priorities, focus energy and resources, strengthen your processes and ensure that your team members have all of the tools necessary to accomplish your goals. Effective strategic planning articulates not only where your team is going and the actions needed to make progress, but also how your team will know if its efforts are successful.

The Center for Information Technology Services (CITS) is the central information technology organization for UMB. Our mission and focus is to treat UMB students, faculty, staff, colleagues, and co-workers as treasured customers. Excellence in service to the UMB community is our challenge and responsibility.
