As Maryland’s only public health, law, and human services university, the University of Maryland, Baltimore (UMB) prepares its graduate students to be the next generation of global health professionals. Seeking to fulfill a strategic goal of ensuring accessible academic programs to scholars of all races, ethnicities, and income levels, UMB undertook an expansive research project to help answer a unique question: Are UMB grad programs affordable for the individual students they serve?”
Read the case study to learn how UMB partnered with HelioCampus to devise a first-of-its-kind, data-rich way to evaluate the true affordability of a UMB education.
"This project went way beyond the nuts and-bolts of hiring an IT company to help run data. HelioCampus understands the landscape of higher
education, and so they were able to look at the findings through a policy perspective. That’s incredibly rare."
