UMBC Magazine

Why an Alumni Magazine?
An informative, thought-provoking, and visually appealing publication helps UMBC build and strengthen the intellectual and emotional engagement of alumni with the University. The magazine provides a window on UMBC—the life of the mind and the life on campus—stimulating discussion and thought about ideas and issues; informing readers of significant University events and trends; and celebrating achievements of alumni, faculty, staff, and students. It examines issues of interest to readers as graduates of UMBC, residents of Maryland, and professionals in a variety of fields including the sciences, technology, social sciences, arts, and humanities.

This publication is unlike any other at UMBC. With the credibility of an independent voice, it allows us to respond to our alumni’s desire for a thought-provoking, informative publication that does “not just look like an advertising piece for the University.”

The magazine seeks to engender pride in the University and to cultivate a sense of shared experience and purpose among alumni. It reinforces the high value of a UMBC degree. It also strengthens connections with other important audiences that influence the University’s reputation, including parents, board members, corporate partners, legislators, higher education opinion leaders, friends of the University, college and university presidents nationwide, high school principals, guidance counselors, faculty, and staff.
