Big Ten Academic Alliance Membership
In July 2013, the University of Maryland joined the Big Ten athletic conference, and by extension, the Big Ten Academic Alliance, which is the academic arm of the Big Ten. The Big Ten Academic Alliance, whose members include all of the Big Ten institutions and the University of Chicago, is one of the broadest, deepest, and most effective academic networks in the country, offering a wide array of cross-campus, collaborative projects.
As a direct result of Maryland’s membership, the university is furthering its research mission and expanding opportunities for graduate students, faculty, and administrators. Explore this section and watch the Think B1G video to learn more.
