student using mobile deviceWelcome

Welcome to the University of Maryland's Mobility Initiative website. Begun in the Fall 2008 semester, the initiative's purpose is to study whether incorporating mobile technology enhances the student educational experience.

Our Mobility Initiative pilot goals are:

  • Enhance the classroom learning experience
  • Promote interaction between faculty and students
  • Provide students with a tool to help them manage their time and navigate the physical and administrative environments on campus
  • Enhance the personal safety of our students
  • Promote the university's world class status through innovation and technology

The Mobility Initiative is sponsored by the Office of the Sr. Vice President of Academic Affairs and Provost, the Office of Undergraduate Admissions, and the Division of Information Technology.
