You remember the feeling. Singing the Maryland fight song in the stands. Rushing to class across McKeldin Mall. Rubbing Testudo’s nose for luck. You’re a Terp. Passionate. Curious. Inspired. And always ready to take the next bold step. Your alumni association is here to help you stay fearless: connecting you with fellow alumni, preparing you for new opportunities and engaging you with unforgettable events.

We’re here to help you stay active, stay connected, stay passionate and, most of all, Stay Fearless!

Our Commitment to the Terp Community
The University of Maryland strives to create an inclusive environment where each member of our community feels that they belong and are empowered to reach their full potential. The University of Maryland Alumni Association is committed to purposefully advancing that goal while inviting our alumni to become TerrapinSTRONG.
Through the Alumni Association’s programming, we strive to have an organization where every alum feels that the Alumni Association is a place where they belong. We enrich the University of Maryland’s impact by serving as a gateway for alums of all identities, abilities, backgrounds, socio-economic classes, and experiences to participate in programs that contribute to a united, respectful, and empowered Terp community. We commit to deepening our learning about diversity, equity, and inclusion, and hold ourselves accountable for evolving into the most just organization possible. As the Alumni Association for the flagship university in the state of Maryland, we feel a sense of responsibility to be leaders in this area.
Join us in the pursuit of a more just and equitable world. Commit to lifelong learning. Be active members of our Terp community and beyond. We invite all alumni to join together as a Terp community in becoming TerrapinSTRONG.
