Education has the power to improve the life of every person on Earth. Compelled by a mission to serve the state and nation, the University of Maryland confronts the most pressing challenges of our time through an unparalleled academic and research enterprise. We integrate science and technology with the arts and humanities to develop the next generation of global citizens who will do good for our communities. We vigorously pursue the discovery of new knowledge and apply it for the advancement of all. This is not merely a campaign for the University of Maryland, it’s a campaign for humankind. That is our Fearless Idea.

The university on May 11 kicked off the $1.5 billion Fearless Ideas: The Campaign for Maryland to support the following four priority areas:

CURIOSITY to discover new knowledge

Through bolstered endowed professorships and graduate fellowships and new research frontiers and facilities, we will solve daunting problems facing the nation and world to help people live better lives.

PASSION to inspire Maryland pride

Major campus projects with local and national impact, student-athlete scholarships and alumni programs will harness the passion at the core of the university to drive economic prosperity and improve the human condition.

INSPIRATION to transform the student experience

Students will find their passion and purpose, thanks to scholarships, new and smarter facilities, unforgettable study abroad programs and other outside-the-classroom experiences.

BOLDNESS to turn imagination into innovation

We will nurture students’ and faculty’s commitment to create the next game-changing technology, artwork, invention or business through pioneering programs in entrepreneurship, art and design.

Here, meet a selection of Terps who are living fearlessly as they represent the ideals of this campaign.
