The Center for Financial Policy at the University of Maryland was launched in November 2009 with the mission of developing thought leadership in financial policy that impacts corporate performance, capital allocation and the stability of the global financial system. Since then, the center has hosted conferences, forums, dialogues with senior policymakers, and Congressional briefings.

Supporting the Center for Financial Policy allows the Smith School to continue leveraging its world-renowned faculty and leading research in a collaborative exchange of ideas and solutions to critical policy issues between business, government, and academia. Contributions are tax-deductible.


Thank you to our sponsors and partners!

The CFP thanks advisor and UMD alum Neal Shear for his ongoing generous support, along with the Roger Low Foundation's programming support.
