    About University of Maryland Eastern Shore

    The University of Maryland Eastern Shore (UMES), a historically Black land-grant university, is a teaching, research, and doctoral institution that nurtures and launches leaders in a student-centered environment, particularly among ethnic minorities. It is committed to providing high-quality programs in an ethnically diverse environment and to preparing students who serve and shape the global economy. UMES is a growing, primarily residential university with a teaching, research, extension, and engagement mission consistent with valuing the scholarship of faculty in discovering knowledge, developing, and disseminating new knowledge, and applying that knowledge to the extended community. The University recognizes that it is also responsible for developing human potential, enriching cultural expression, and sharing its expertise with individuals, businesses, and educational and governmental agencies. Teaching, research, and engagement foci align with UMES’ legacy and mission as Maryland’s 1890 land-grant institution. UMES is proud of its more than one hundred seventeen years of continuous educational service, initially under the aegis of the Methodist Church.
