Our 1,250 acre College Park campus is minutes away from Washington, DC, the nexus of the nationís legislative, executive and judicial centers or power. This unique proximity to business and technology centers, federal departments and agencies, and a myriad of research entities, embassies, think tanks, cultural centers, and non-profit organizations is unparalleled. The University is committed to attracting and retaining outstanding and diverse faculty and staff that will enhance our stature of preeminence in our missions of teaching, scholarly research, and full engagement in our community, the state of Maryland, and internationally.

Region Description
Maryland, nicknamed America in Miniature, has a little bit of everything: both sea and mountain, urban and rural, historic and modern. It ranges from some of the nationís most densely populated areas around Washington, D.C., to bucolic rural areas in the east around the Chesapeake Bay and Eastern Shore, and in the Appalachian Mountains in the west. Baltimore is the stateís biggest city, with literal boatloads of tourist attractions around its Inner Harbor; Annapolis, with its historical maritime charm, is its capital. It is a great area for people who like the outdoors, cultural activities, and easy access to other major cities along the east coast.
