Accomplishments

Just a little bit of bragging about our faculty, staff, students and alumni.

  • The University of Baltimore has been selected as one of 75 institutions nationwide to participate in the Association of College and Research Libraries Assessment in Action program. This opportunity is funded in large part by a grant that ACRL received from the Institute of Museum and Library Services. The grant will support the design, implementation and evaluation of a program to strengthen the competencies of librarians in campus leadership and data-informed advocacy. UB will be engaged in planning for, collecting and analyzing assessment data for 14-months. The UB team includes several College of Arts and Sciences faculty, including Natalie Burclaff, Mike Kiel, Beverly Schneller (associate provost), Paul Walsh (director of instructional technology), John Goshert and Catherine Johnson.
