Why UMUC Ventures?

UMUC Ventures recognizes that higher education is in the midst of a “perfect storm.” Colleges and universities like UMUC are facing rising costs, increased competition and changing demographics. At the same time, students with financial limitations are struggling to complete degrees and achieve their career goals. The higher education business model must transform.

UMUC Ventures is Leading Higher Education Forward by identifying revenue-generating opportunities to support the transformation of higher education. We then return the proceeds to the UMUC endowment to maintain the affordability of a high quality UMUC education for adult learners in Maryland and around the world.
