Vidterp Video - Three Minute Tour of Maryland

The University of Maryland, College Park (often referred to as The University of Maryland, UMD, UMCP or simply Maryland) is a public research university located in the city of College Park in Prince George's County, Maryland outside Washington, D.C. Founded in 1856, the University of Maryland is the flagship institution of the University System of Maryland. The University is considered to be a "Public Ivy;" an institution that "provides an Ivy League collegiate education at a public school price." At a total enrollment of 36,014 students, Maryland is the largest university in the state as well as the Washington Metropolitan Area.[3] It is a member of the Association of American Universities.

The University of Maryland's location has created strong research partnerships, especially with the Federal government. Many members of the faculty receive research funding and institutional support from agencies such as the National Institutes of Health, the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) and the Department of Homeland Security.

As of fiscal year 2007, the University of Maryland, College Park's operating budget was projected to be approximately $1.352 billion.[4] The University has also raised more than $500 million in private donations in its recent "Great Expectations" campaign.

The university's faculty has included four Nobel Prize laureates. The earliest recipient, Juan Ramón Jiménez, was a professor of Spanish language and literature and won the 1956 prize for literature. Four decades later, physics professor William Daniel Phillips won the prize for physics in 1997. In 2005, professor emeritus of economics and public policy Thomas Schelling was awarded the prize in economics for his contributions to game theory. In 2006, adjunct professor of physics and senior astrophysicist at NASA John C. Mather was awarded the prize in physics alongside George Smoot for their work in the discovery of blackbody radiation. In addition, two University of Maryland alumni are Nobel Prize laureates; Herbert Hauptman won the 1985 prize in chemistry and Raymond Davis Jr. won the 2002 prize in physics.

The University also has many notable academics in other field of science. Professor of mathematics Sergei Petrovich Novikov won the Fields Medal in 1970 followed by alumnus Charles Fefferman in 1978. Alumnus George Dantzig won the 1975 National Medal of Science for his work in the field of linear programming.
