UMGC ImpactMilitary

Serving the military is firmly entrenched in UMGC’s DNA. The university was founded in 1947 to serve adults students, many of whom were veterans returning from World War II. In 1949, the university was among the first to send faculty overseas to teach U.S. troops stationed in Europe. In 1956, UMGC expanded its operation into Asia.

Today, about half of the university’s students are active-duty servicemembers or their families, veterans, reservists, and members of the National Guard. Learn how your gift can help these dedicated men and women achieve their education dreams.
