Ian M. Davis, B.A. '09 English
Staying connected to UB is an easy choice for this UB grad.
From spending time back in the classroom to making an annual gift, Ian Davis, B.A. '09, is reinvigorated with the same pride he felt attending UB when he sees the impact he is having on current students.
"Staying connected to UB through a yearly gift has given me many wonderful opportunities to continue my UB experience after graduation," Davis explains. "UB is more than my alma mater, it has continued to be a significant part of my community."
Davis served as an alumni speaker through the Backpack to Briefcase program, a program designed to bring alumni back into the classroom to share their experiences and career advice with students.
Davis earned his Bachelor of Arts in English, and since graduating, he has taught English in both public and private schools.
"My UB education has been instrumental in my subsequent professional career as an English teacher," says Davis. As an advocate for the UB experience, he has been volunteering in another unique way as well – recommending high school students to attend his alma mater.
"UB is an excellent state university that somehow provides its students with a small, liberal arts, private school experience," says Davis. "I have seen how students that I have recommended to UB have been accepted and given support, scholarships, and a meaningful college education. That is why I continue to give back to the University of Baltimore."
You can impact current UB students, too. Join Ian Davis and make your annual gift to UB online at ubalt.edu/support.
