A public university, the University of Baltimore offers excellent teaching and a supportive community for undergraduate, graduate and professional students in an environment distinguished by academic research and public service. UB's institutional vision is to become a living-learning laboratory at the center of the Baltimore renaissance. By blending the perspectives of law, liberal arts and business, the University of Baltimore community will create and transmit ingenious solutions to challenging issues regionally, nationally and internationally.
