“The University of Baltimore was founded in 1925 and has gone through many structural and academic changes over the years. As the University approaches its 100th anniversary in 2025, UB Special Collections & Archives is planning extensive oral history interviews with faculty, staff, trustees, and alumni. Through this oral history project, the University will be able to tell more about its history over the past 50 years. The project will start in the spring of 2021 and will continue until 2025. The first phase of the project will include interviews with retired faculty and staff, representative alumni for every decade of the past 50 years, and employees who are about to retire or leave the university. Next, employees who have worked at the university for more than twenty years will be interviewed. The interviewees will be selected from a broad range of people with diverse responsibilities, duties, backgrounds, and years of service. The interviews will be archived within the UB RLB Library‚Äôs Special Collections and Archives.”
