You are here
Welcome to the center of bulldog country.
We are the center of the student experience.
We will be the front porch of the UMD community.
What does that mean?
It means that Kirby is your home away from home, your place to feel safe, welcome, and valued. It means that Kirby is the place you can come to try out this whole "adulting" thing, or to hang onto being a kid as long as you want to. Join an organization, learn leadership skills, forge new relationships, blaze new trails.
And the front porch?
Once you've been around UMD a while, you'll hear about "the porch", where students can get together to talk about the weather, their families, classes, or last night's concert. Kirby wants to be the front porch for our entire community, the place anyone can come to learn more about what's going on in this amazing university, and to engage with our faculty, our staff, and most of all, our fantastic students.
What have we accomplished?
Check out our usage data, our program audiences, and our learning outcomes in a comprehensive but easy-to-read annual report. (There's lots of pictures.)
