Universities across the nation and the world have to be more innovative than ever. For many this means forging stronger partnerships moving beyond the traditional "town & gown" approach. This has never been more evident than at the University of Maryland, College Park where university and local leaders are striving to define the modern land-grant university. As part of the “Greater College Park” initiative to drive job creation, innovation and economic development, the university is on a mission to transform not only the university but revitalize the city of College Park.
