University of Maryland and City of College Park Demonstrate the Power of Partnership

With more than 40,000 students, the University of Maryland (UMD) has been a major presence in the City of College Park for more than 150 years. UMD and College Park leaders recognized a need to transform downtown College Park into a vibrant, diverse and walkable community that would best serve City residents, attract top faculty and students, and galvanize entrepreneurs and research opportunities. That shared focus inspired a successful development partnership—a first for the city and the university. This innovative development is poised to become a lively public space, with modern UMD offices, and a highly visible center for accessing city services. It illustrates the power of city-university partnership—and will undoubtedly serve as a model for other university communities.
