Support the UMD Council on the Environment

Giving to Maryland means supporting the expectations and the fulfillment of excellence. As we position ourselves among the world's best research universities, your support enables us to continue attracting talented students and faculty, funding quality teaching and research facilities and creating innovative approaches to address the most challenging issues of our time.

The University of Maryland has identified the following areas as Research Priorities:

  • Sustainability & Climate Adaptation
  • Terrorism
  • Cybersecurity
  • Language Sciences and Culture
  • Safe Foods, Drugs and Medical Devices
  • Bioinformatics, Bioimaging and Health IT

with a focus on Environment and Innovation as key messages to the state/nation/world. UMD has world reknowned scientists focusing on climate change and sustainability, with more research and development spending and more human capital currently invested than other regions such as Research Triangle Park. Thus the UMD Council on the Environment will lead strategic efforts to place UMD and corporate and federal partners as the experts in climate and earth science research.

Please support their efforts by giving directly to  the Council on the Environment. The Council on the Environment can be found under the College of Computer, Mathematical and Natural Sciences on the "Giving to Maryland" homepage.
