The University of Maryland has announced the establishment of an undergraduate minor in construction management, with the first courses available beginning fall 2015.

Generously funded by the Colvin Family Foundation, the new minor will offer foundational knowledge in sustainable construction and design through experiential learning and a professional guided curriculum, forwarding the university’s continued mission to support student innovation and entrepreneurship. Along with a minor in construction management, UMD has also established an undergraduate minor in real estate development.

“The kind of responsibility we have as a land grant institution is reflected in the values of John and Karen Colvin and the Colvin Institute of Real Estate Development,” said University President Wallace Loh at the signing of the Letter of Agreement at the School of Architecture, Planning and Preservation. “We are very fortunate to celebrate this magnificent gift from the Colvin’s that will expand this program to undergraduates.”

The interdisciplinary minors will be jointly administered by the School of Architecture, Planning and Preservation and the A. James Clark School of Engineering. Available to undergraduate students campus-wide, the minors will offer a mix of existing and new coursework to match and anticipate industry trends.

The Colvin Family Foundation, under the guidance of John and Karen Colvin, has pledged $1 million to support the initiative. The university anticipates the new gift will not only support the new minors, but also seed the study for a future undergraduate major in Real Estate Development.
