University of Baltimore
The University of Baltimore is the public undergraduate, graduate and professional University, located in the heart of the state's largest city (just across the street from Penn Station) and proud to embrace the diversity that is critical to its role as an urban anchor institution.
From its beginnings, the University has granted educational access to a remarkably wide range of students: working adults, first-generation college goers, career changers, and those who require the flexibility not found in traditional college settings.
1925: The University of Baltimore was founded as a private night School of Law and College of Business Administration.
1937: A junior college was added.
1975: The University became a public institution under the Board of Trustees of State Universities and Colleges, shifting its structure to an upper-division undergraduate, master's-level and professional institution.
1988: UB joined the University of Maryland System (now known as the University System of Maryland).
2007: UB returned to four-year undergraduate education as part of the state's plan for higher education, in response to the increased demand for accessible, high-quality public education.

The University also holds specialized accreditations from AACSB International (Merrick School of Business), the ABA (School of Law), CALEA (University of Baltimore Police), and other agencies and organizations, and is is committed to meet its obligations as outlined in the Higher Education Opportunity Act of 2008 and in other reporting requirements.
