Research & Impact

At the University of Maryland, we are equipping and empowering a Do Good generation to apply their passions and ideas to make a positive impact in the world today.

We’re not just motivating students to do good. We’re equipping them with the skills, experiences and resources that result in a lifelong commitment to social impact. Here's how. 

Do Good Institute Programs

The University of Maryland is uniquely qualified to educate and inspire the next generation of community and nonprofit leaders. I believe the unique opportunities created by the Do Good programs will change the lives of students who in turn will make positive change in our State in ways we cannot even imagine.
