School Mission

The University of Maryland Eastern Shore (UMES)- a historically Black land-grant university- is a teaching- research- and doctoral institution that nurtures and launches leaders in a student-centered environment- particularly among ethnic minorities. It is committed to providing high-quality programs in an ethnically diverse environment and to preparing students who serve and shape the global economy. UMES is a growing- primarily residential university with a teaching- research- extension- and engagement mission consistent with valuing the scholarship of faculty in discovering knowledge- developing- and disseminating new knowledge- and applying that knowledge to the extended community. The University recognizes that it is also responsible for developing human potential- enriching cultural expression- and sharing its expertise with individuals- businesses- and educational and governmental agencies. Teaching- research- and engagement foci align with UMES' legacy and mission as Maryland's 1890 land-grant institution. UMES is proud of its more than one hundred seventeen years of continuous educational service- initially under the aegis of the Methodist Church.
