1,000% Committed to Student Success

At UMBC, student success aims to encourage student engagement, learning and progress toward the student's own academic, career, and personal goals. Providing support, guidance, and resources that equip students to pursue their educational journey and foster lifelong relationships creates the foundation for student success. Students achieve success by actively engaging in opportunities for growth in and out of the classroom. These experiences ensure that students have the tools to achieve their goals. At UMBC, we believe every student possesses a unique and valuable perspective that enriches and transforms our community.

We have a goal of 1,000 donors making a gift during Black & Gold Rush 2024 from May 8 at 9 a.m. through May 9 at 9 p.m. EST. Your generosity is essential to the continued success of our students achieving their academic, career, and lifelong goals and dreams.
