After years of tepid enrollment spurred by the pandemic, colleges and universities in Maryland are trying to stabilize and grow their student populations with varying degrees of success. Several Maryland schools, public and private, enrolled fewer students in the fall, including the University of Baltimore, as well as Frostburg State, Coppin State, Notre Dame of Maryland and Johns Hopkins universities. Other institutions in the state, such as the University of Maryland Eastern Shore and Morgan State University, recorded significant gains. “It’s been a mixed bag for us,” said Kurt Schmoke, president of the University of Baltimore. “Our law school is doing very well on enrollment. But on our undergraduate side, we rely very heavily on transfers from community colleges, and those enrollments have been down for two years.”
