Central Baltimore Higher Education Collaborative

In the fall of 2008, the Central Baltimore Higher Education Collaborative was formed.  Featuring the Maryland Institute College of Art, the Johns Hopkins University, the University of Baltimore, and Goucher College, the CBHEC focuses on the area of the city form the Hopkins Homewood campus on the north to UB on the south and from Greenmount Cemetery on the east to the train tracks on the west.  It includes all of Old Goucher.

The goal of this work is to use the creative energies of our faculty, students, and staff through action research, service learning, and volunteerism in partnership with community stakeholders to address issues of interest and concern. To jumpstart the process, Robert Bogomolny, UB’s president, has allowed Jessica Elfenbein, Associate Provost for University Engagement, to commit the majority of her time this year to this initiative. In addition, Johnny Gamber, UB’s VISTA; Christina Ralls, UB's Community Arts Corps member; and Kelly McPhee, UB's AmeriCorps ProCorps member will work in the community and between and among the campuses in 2008-09.
