The University of Maryland is Building Near Amazon’s New HQ2

The University of Maryland is opening a brand-new tech hub near Amazon’s new HQ2 headquarters in Arlington, Virginia.

Reported by Education Dive, the University of Maryland joins Virginia Tech and George Mason University in building new facilities near HQ2 in attempts to partner with and leverage the proximity of Amazon for their own technology initiatives.

The University of Maryland’s Discovery Center will serve as a multi-purpose space for academic, business, student and networking purposes.

The takeaway? While Amazon’s HQ2 has ushered a land-grab in Arlington, Virgnia, how can we similarly partner with local businesses on win-win collaborations?

May you continue to fight the good enrollment growth fight at your institution today, and we’ll see you again tomorrow.
