About Us

The decisions college students make today often impact the rest of their lives.

Would you like to support college students as they ask “What will I do with my life?”; deal with stress, anxiety, the intense pressure to succeed; and struggle with choices concerning personal ethics, relationships, and what role to play in regards to social justice and global responsibility?

Would you like to make a difference in the lives of young people?

The United Campus Ministry (UCM) at the University of Maryland provides quality spiritual support and programs for young adults during critical years.Our on-campus Christian chaplaincy offers a safe environment where students from diverse backgrounds can come together to honestly question, grow and live out their faith.UCM extends a warm welcome to young people, and travels with them through all the twists, turns and detours of their spiritual journeys.
