Critical to its mission and an important part of its engagement with the wider world, the University of Baltimore's centers, institutes and clinics serve a variety of needs.
"In the most fundamental sense, colleges and universities exist to produce knowledge and solve problems. From our teaching and research, to our support of all students as they forge new and exciting careers, the University of Baltimore is contributing to solutions for some of society's most pressing concerns. Given our size and location, UBalt is making a major impact on the world around us. Our centers—growing, vital, and highly respected—are a great example of our work in the public sphere. I urge everyone to take a look at what they are doing for our city, state and the region. It really is amazing work."
-Kurt L. Schmoke
President of the University of Baltimore
These organizations rely on the talents of UBalt faculty, students, staff and external partners to conduct research on and offer solutions to some of society's most pressing issues. Several present our students with their first real-life experiences in the careers for which they are preparing, through fellowships, internships and more. All are closely linked to the University's schools and colleges, ensuring that what is taught in the classroom can be linked to what is happening in Baltimore, the mid-Atlantic and beyond.
Following is a list of UBalt's public-facing centers for knowledge acquisition and problem solving, and, where applicable, the schools with which they are affiliated.
