Inspired by its land-grant mission legacy, The University of Maryland honors its commitment to developing research, educational, and technological strengths to positively impact the quality of life, not just locally but worldwide. The benefits of UMD's land-grant tradition have granted UMD ARLIS a clear mission to not only create purpose-driven research to address some of our country's most difficult challenges but also to nurture a pipeline of future scientists and build academic partnerships with higher learning institutions nationwide.
UMD's proximity to the nation's capital has resulted in many research partnerships with the federal government. This advantage allows students and IC professionals to work alongside ARLIS researchers to create new academies and foster internship programs.
ARLIS is devoted to the University of Maryland's pursuit of academic excellence, prospering the success of the State of Maryland, and providing immediate service and effective solutions to the needs of the United States Department of Defense and Intelligence Communities.
