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, education, experiences and resources that result in a lifelong commitment to social impact. Here's how.
