About USG
History & Mission

In fall 2000, The University System of Maryland (USM) introduced a new concept in advanced education. This was the beginning of the Universities at Shady Grove (USG)—currently a collaboration of nine, public degree-granting institutions that brings some of the top programs from across the state to one convenient facility in Montgomery County.

A model for regional higher education

"To bring the highest quality University System of Maryland education, research, and services to citizens, businesses, and government in Montgomery County and the surrounding region."
