What does civic engagement look like at UMBC?

Student Life supports students in making a difference. We help students learn from incredibly rich experiences developing and carrying out campus and community initiatives. When you work with your Student Government Association, student organization or Alternative School Break group to tackle problems and create real solutions, your knowledge, motivation, skills and values become sharper, and you gain strength and perspective for future endeavors

Do you want to make a meaningful difference by helping to solve problems, build communities, and empower others? UMBC is a national leader in preparing students for lives of deep community engagement and impact. In working together with others to make a difference on campus and beyond, students learn how to imagine and organize social change projects, build powerful networks, bridge differences and co-create their communities and world. Student Life supports this important aspect of campus life through a variety of programs and supports for student leaders and future leaders.
