Expanding its global footprint, the University of Maryland announced it has joined Universitas 21, an international network of research universities.
UM is one of only four U.S. universities in the network.
With 27 institutions in 17 countries, U21 members collaborate to develop research partnerships and exchanges for students, faculty and staff.
U21 will significantly increase Maryland students’ access to study-abroad exchanges, enabling them to spend a semester at some of the world’s greatest universities for the price of in-state tuition.
More than 20,000 students within the U21 network have taken advantage of study-abroad exchanges.
Graduate students will find more research opportunities, and faculty can engage in joint research and teaching.
