UMBC’s Office of the Provost has provided funding to spark curricular innovations through BreakingGround. The initiative’s course development grants support faculty in creating new courses and modifying existing courses that empower students as civic agents.
UMBC departments and student organizations interested in developing community programs or service initiatives reflecting BreakingGround themes can now also apply for implementation grants of up to $1,000. The purpose of these grants is to help transform what would otherwise be one-time community service projects into forums for the development of civic agency.
Whether you have one hour to spare or want to be a full-time community leader, UMBC has a service opportunity for you. Connect with our campus community and greater Baltimore through the Shriver Center Service-Learning program, which enables students to choose sites that align with their passions and goals.
