Thank You For "Reaching for the Stars" This Homecoming Season

At UMGC, we reach for the stars. While each “star” may be different - an advanced degree, a promotion, a career change, a better community or world - the act of reaching is what ties our global UMGC community together. Individually, we reach for our “star,” but together we pursue dreams, goals, and opportunities. 

Thank you for joining us and uniting our UMGC community around the world this past Homecoming season. Nearly 1,200 members of your global UMGC community participated in Homecoming 2023 festivities, representing 5 continents, 11 countries, and 39 states. It was such an achievement to celebrate the stars that have been reached and to dream together as we set our sights on our next "stars".

Homecoming Highlights: UMGC Metaverse and Master of Ceremonies

For the first time ever, Homecoming 2023 ventured into the UMGC Metaverse – an immersive 3D virtual experience that provided a chance for students and alumni around the world to explore, learn, and connect.

What your UMGC Community is Saying...


Making an Global Impact

In lieu of a UMGC Homecoming registration fee, together your UMGC community raised $6,000 to meet the increasing needs of students through UMGC’s Student Aid for Emergency Relief (SAFER) Fund.

These contributions will mitigate the impact of financial emergencies and keep students on the path to graduation. UMGC’s SAFER fund is supported entirely by donations from our generous community. If you are able, please consider a gift of $25, $50, $100 or more to help students around the world facing unexpected temporary financial hardship.
