The Map of UB Influence
The map of UB shows the ways we invest in the city, the ways we work to strengthen our community and the things we’re helping to build.
Maps show us where we are. They help us get to where we’re going. They reveal what surrounds us.
But maps also have a point of view: Mapmakers make decisions about what’s included on each map. They choose the orientation, how far the map goes in each direction and what features to highlight. By these choices, they create a story of a place and time.
The map of UB influence portrays not only our campus, but our connections. Picture UB at the very center of a map. Moving outward we see the neighborhoods where we live, work and grow. Nestled in these communities are programs and initiatives that involve our students, faculty, staff and alumni. These may include scholarships to fund entrepreneurial and other studies; grants that make enrichment experiences in the city and elsewhere possible; or data-sharing programs that help neighborhoods thrive.
This map of UB portrays the ways we strive to make a difference through commitment and dedication to our UB community, and to Baltimore and its people. The map reflects our worldview, and at the same time, shows how we are creating it.
We invite you to join us on the journey as we change and grow. Together we can make the story bigger and better. Together, we can follow the map—and who knows where it may lead?
