Through collaborations with on-campus and off-campus organizations, the UMB Office of Community Engagement supports three types of initiatives to support the residents of West Baltimore in finding sustainable employment.

Through a collaboration with the Mayor's Office of Employment Development (MOED) and the Southwest Partnership, the UMB Office of Community Engagement runs a weekly, career-focused open house at the Community Engagement Center. Staff from MOED, UMB's Human Resources staffing office, and our office work with community members on a walk-in basis each Wednesday. Individuals can get assistance with online job searches, résumé review, interview skills, and more. To date, we have had more than 300 visits to Workforce Wednesday. More than 100 of those visitors have been hired by a partnering organization.

The Southwest Partnership's Workforce Roundtable runs a community referral program where qualified residents who apply for jobs at Southwest Partnership anchor institutions can get preferred treatment. To date, the anchor institutions participating are UMB and the University of Maryland Medical Center.
