Smith School’s QUEST program brings a fresh eye and a student voice to Administrative Modernization Program.

The Middle States Commission on Higher Education (MSCHE) has commended the University of Maryland’s Administrative Modernization Program (AMP) for its efforts to provide improved services to the university community at a lower cost, and to redirect savings to the institution's core missions.

An administrative initiative that launched on campus this year will simplify how the University of Maryland does business. Led by the Office of the Provost with the support of the Office of the President, the Administrative Modernization Program (AMP) will update, strengthen and unify processes such as budgeting, procurement, travel and student services to advance UMD’s strategic mission and improve the level of service for students, faculty and staff.

University President Wallace Loh presents the vision of the University of Maryland’s Administrative Modernization Program (AMP) in this new video. “It is our shared responsibility to improve how we work and deploy our resources as creatively and effectively as possible,” says Loh.
