Freeman Alphonsa Hrabowski III is a prominent American educator, advocate, and mathematician. In May 1992 he began his term as president of the University of Maryland, Baltimore County, one of the twelve public universities comprising the Maryland university system. Hrabowski has transformed a no-name, commuter university into a research institution recognized as one of the most innovative in the country. His administration continues to build a campus that’s first-rate in research and instruction, and that prepares students of all backgrounds for career success. Under his adept leadership, UMBC has been ranked the #1 Up and Coming University in the USA for six consecutive years by U.S. News and World Report magazine. Hrabowski is the co-author of the books, Beating the Odds: Raising Academically Successful African American Males, Overcoming the Odds: Raising Academically Successful African American Young Women, and Holding Fast to Dreams: Empowering Youth from the Civil Rights Crusade to STEM. His research and many publications focus on science and math education, with a special emphasis on minority participation and performance.
