UMES Named Co-Winner of 1890 University of the Year Honors

Posted:
PRINCESS ANNE, MD - The University of Maryland Eastern Shore is a co-winner of the “1890 University of the Year” award from the Association of Public and Land-grant Universities.  

UMES and North Carolina A&T State University shared the honor handed out by the APLU's Council of 1890 Universities.  The award recognizes best overall performance in teaching, research and innovation over the previous two academic years.  UMES and NC A&T were among the top three in six of 14 categories, according to APLU.   

President Juliette B. Bell and a delegation from UMES accepted the award during APLU's 2014 annual meeting in Orlando, Fla. earlier this month.  

“I am encouraged the institution's mission and president's goal to reach eminence are exemplified by the presentation of this award,” said Dr. Lombuso S. Khoza, chair of the UMES Senate. “This award is a great testament to the achievements of our institution as an HBCU that strives to go above and beyond duty.”   

UMES' increase in the number of undergraduate students participating in study-abroad programs — the largest among institutions considered for the award — also earned the council's “International Student Development Award.”   

The annual 1890 awards are based on self-reported data submitted in such categories as student retention, research, alumni engagement, revenue and expenditures, which are judged by peers.  

“The 1890 Teaching, Research and Innovation Awards serve not only as a means to recognize the advances of 1890 university campuses in these areas, but serve as a means to tell the story of how black public universities are going above and beyond their call of duty,” said John Michael Lee Jr., APLU's vice president for access and success.  

Twenty historically black institutions comprise APLU's Council of 1890 Universities. Bell is chair of the council's executive committee.
