The University of Maryland Center for Economic and Entrepreneurship (UMCEED)

IMPACT: UMCEED creates educational degree programs in high-impact fields to increase workforce readiness. 

Funding began in July 2017, and faculty and staff are working to develop additional degree programs in neuroscience, virtual and augmented reality, biomedical devices, data analytics, and cybersecurity. Mary Ann Rankin, PhD, UMCP senior vice president and provost, was appointed executive director of UMCEED.  UMCEED is seeking funding from corporate sponsors to create endowed chairs and other resources needed to support new degree programs.
