Keeping Retirees Connected to UMBC

Our Mission

The Wisdom Institute, UMBC's Association for Retirees offers a community for retirees of UMBC to continue the culture of family we experienced as employed members of UMBC.  The Wisdom Institute does its best to remove any barriers to retirees' involvement with no pressure for participation or membership fees. 

Even though UMBC is a relatively young institution, there are a substantial number of retirees from both the staff and faculty members.  Together we can benefit from the opportunities for learning, teaching, public engagement, volunteerism, and just plain fun.  Together the entire UMBC community can benefit from the opportunities the Wisdom Institute creates and the wealth of experience the members of The Wisdom Institute bring to the table.  

Where will the money go?

Your contribution to The Wisdom Institute will allow us to offer additional programming, and fund opportunities for engagement with the UMBC community. We have many ideas for programming and projects, but our limited budget will only allow a few of these ideas to flourish.  We charge no membership fees for joining The Wisdom Institute so funding is limited.  Funds raised through this fundraising program will allow for the development and expansion of our programming.

All contributions raised are administered by the UMBC Foundation for the benefit of UMBC.
