UMES 30 Ep. 37--In Their Own Words: Telling The UMES Story

Sep 3, 2019

Dr. Heidi M. Anderson took the helm at UMES as its 16th President in 2018.

Many colleges and universities around the country are starting their Fall Semester.

Students have begun moving into their dorms, participating in various campus orientations, and preparing for their first week of classes.

The University of Maryland Eastern Shore is no exception.

UMES is an HBCU—Historically Black College or University—situated on 1,100 acres of land in Princess Anne, Maryland.

The university is an 1890 Land Grant Institution and is a University System of Maryland Institution accredited by the Middle States Commission on Higher Education.

Why should students consider coming to UMES?

On this episode of UMES 30, we will attempt to answer that question by listening to faculty, staff, alumni, and students tell their stories in their own words.

You’ll be hearing clips from previous episodes of UMES 30 hosted by Dr. Joshua K. Wright, who was an Associate Professor of History here at the University of Maryland Eastern Shore for 8 years.
