Special mission
University of Maryland: Eastern Shore is a small, 4-year, public university. This coed college is located in a suburban community in a rural setting and is primarily a residential campus. It offers certificate, bachelor's, master's, and doctoral degrees.
From the Institution
Founded September 13, 1886, the University of Maryland Eastern Shore (UMES) has a mission which continues to evolve and which has become more comprehensive in scope as the University's affiliations, organizational structure, and purpose have been expanded by relevant governing bodies to address state, national, and global needs. UMES, however, maintains its legacy as a comprehensive, 1890 land-grant, Historically Black College/University (HBCU); and effective January 2016 has achieved the long-term strategic goal of moving up from Carnegie classification as a Master's Small Programs to Doctoral Research University/R2.
