Who Are We?
The Alumni Association is the heart of the university, inspiring lifelong connections with a global network of Maryland alumni.
How Will We Use Your Donation?
Your donations will help us strengthen our Terp community through programs and events including...
Professional Development for Alumni
Your Alumni Association offers career programming for all stages of your professional journey, from career bootcamps with Mission Collaborative, to mentoring and networking programs that connect Terps, to masterclass workshops and seminars that help Terps rise from middle managers to senior executives.
Our enTERPreneur program specializes in content for Terps interested in business ownership. Signature programs include our Terp Entrepreneur Network (TEN) Conference, #TerpBusiness campaign and the Terp Referral Exchange business directory (coming 2021).
Diversity and Inclusion Initiatives
Diversity and inclusion is the cornerstone of our work. We tirelessly pursue diverse and inclusive engagement in our programming through such events as Black Alumni Weekend, the Latinx Heritage Month and Pride Month festivities.
Health and Fitness
With the COVID-19 pandemic shutting down gyms and restaurants, the Alumni Association stepped into gear to provide Terps with fun and healthy options to stay fit and eat well. Free fitness and yoga classes, cooking demos and even a Terp Cookbook - all led by Terp instructors and chefs - are a few of the ways we are supporting Terps’ mental and physical well-being.
