The University serves a truly diverse and nontraditional student population evenly divided between full-time and part-time students. Students are on campus for day, evening and weekend classes. UB also offers online instruction, including fully online MBA and M.P.A. programs.
UB’s nearly 50,000 alumni serve as testimony to the University’s success in its educational endeavors.

The University’s location—in the center of the state’s largest city—strengthens the institution’s historic commitment to public service, community engagement and regional stewardship. The city of Baltimore is indeed UB’s extended campus. The University is distinguished by a strong commitment to student success, career readiness, academic excellence and innovation. Core institutional values reflect the University’s Knowledge That Works theme and are articulated in UB’s strategic plan as:
• student success
• educational access
• scholarship, research and creative activity
• regional and resource stewardship
• the UB community.
