Analyzing the program offerings of BCCC, UB and Coppin one can easily see how they would complement one another. Coppin, for example, offers degrees in the education of teachers and has a modern science research facility that is not duplicated by UB. In addition to its primary focus on workforce development, BCCC offers programs in robotics/mechatronics technology and in a range of health careers not offered at other institutions. BCCC also has a new president, Debra L. McCurdy, with a distinguished record as an administrator at both two-year and four-year institutions. Her experience in Georgia, where the state merged a community college with Georgia State University, offers a unique perspective to the challenges in Baltimore. UB, of course, is the only institution in the University System of Maryland with a law school and strong undergraduate programs located on the same campus, offering wonderful interdisciplinary opportunities.
