Hrabowski first joined UMBC in 1987 as vice provost. He became president in 1992 and has served as a leader in the higher education sector throughout his time at UMBC. His many achievements as president include growing the university’s STEM programs, improving graduation rates and upping fundraising efforts.

Wonder if he’s related to the family with the same last name that attended the 6th Avenue Baptist in BHM?

He's from Birmingham, AL.

Figured as much…distinguishable last name stood out for me….

Any idea what school he prepped at in BHM?

Sorry, I don't.  I just read about him in Condoleezza Rice's first memoir.  They grew up in the same neighborhood about the same time.  Angela Davis who was older than Rice and Hrabowski grew up in the same neighborhood, but left to go to high school elsewhere.

Ok. So it’s the same family that grew up in Titusville, adjacent to the church.

Freeman Hrabowski, the longtime president of UMBC, built a legacy challenging the assumption that only prestigious, wealthy colleges foster educational excellence.
