Our Mission

As the two largest anchor institutions on the Westside of Baltimore, the University of Maryland, Baltimore and the University of Maryland Medical Center will work in partnership with our neighbors to build and support a healthy, empowered, socially cohesive, and revitalized community.

West Baltimore is a special place to all of us, because all of us call it home. The things that matter to you—health care, education, jobs, safety—are important to us, too. Through our new Partnership with West Baltimore, we’ll be looking for ways we can all come together to make West Baltimore the best it can be.

The Partnership with West Baltimore is focused on four things:

  • Improving community health
  • Strengthening economic and community development
  • Supporting education and youth development
  • Improving communication with community members

Join us as we work together for a healthy, empowered, and united West Baltimore.
