UMBC President on Time's Most Influential People List

Freeman A. Hrawbowski III is on Time Magazine's list of 100 Most Influential People in the World.

 

President Freeman A. Hrabowski III has been named as one of the 100 most influential people in the world, in Time Magazine's annual list.

The 61-year-old Hrabowski has been at the helm since 1992 and has been named to several influential lists before.

In 2009, Time named him one of the 10 best college presidents. He was also named to U.S. News and World Report's best leaders in America. U.S. News also ranked UMBC as the No. 1 "up and coming" university in 2009, 2010 and 2011, according to UMBC.

In an article in the Baltimore Sun, Hrabowski said his success and the success of the campus are the same.

Time praised the college's Meyerhoff Scholars Program, which was started in 1988 as a financial and academic support program for black men in math and science. Today the program is open to all students and has helped 700 over the years.
