News & Events: Frederick Campus

New Entrance Collage

Dedication & Reception to be held on April 17
(Invitation only)

Early this year, the University signed a seven-year lease to add 12,000 square feet to its current space of 16,000 feet at the Frederick Campus, allowing it to remain in and occupy the entire facility.  New ownership has been very supportive of the University’s expansion plans. Work of exterior improvements – including a new entrance and building signage – began this summer. Interior improvements will increase the number of classrooms by five, add additional offices, offer a new eating/lounge area, and feature a new lobby. The University anticipates that the interior improvements will be completed in time for the January 2013 semester.

This expansion will be fortified by the addition of a new Academic Dean, Dr. Greg Ochoa, as well as several full-time faculty members. New programs to be offered at the Frederick Campus are in development, and a few are coming on line this fall, including courses in government contracting and a graduate certificate program in logistics and supply chain management.

Being a former adult student himself, Adjunct Professor Kelly Garrett, knows that adult students are eager to learn something that is practical to their everyday work. "The real value we offer in the Mount's Masters of Health Administration program is the methodologies that students take away from class and can apply right away to improve their organizations," says Garrett.

Cortney Smith didn't always know where she wanted higher education to take her, but once she figured out her path, she sprinted to the finish line.
     Smith, 24, graduated from Frederick High School in 2005 and enrolled in Hood College intending to study biology. She soon changed her mind.
     "I decided that wasn't where my passion was," she said.
     Thinking she'd try nursing, she transferred to Frederick Community College.
     But she began an internship at Fort Detrick in 2007 and discovered government work was more her speed, so she left FCC with her associate degree and enrolled at the Frederick campus of Mount St. Mary's University. There, she earned her bachelor's degree and her Master of Business Administration, all while working full time at Fort Detrick, where as a contract specialist, she manages and sets up contracts for research labs.

CJ student reviewing researchAt the request of current Frederick City Police Chief, Kim C. Dine, a research team from the Criminal Justice Student Association of Mount Saint Mary’s University conducted an evaluation of the Frederick City Police Department’s Police Activities League Program (PAL) located in the Sagner Community in Frederick.

The Police Activities League was originally founded to help decrease the amount of delinquent activities juveniles were committing in the city of New York.  In addition, it also provided a place of refuge for at-risk children. Since the creation of the New York City PAL Program, it has become nationally recognized. PAL programs are continually developing, improving, thus, executing an invaluable service to the communities they serve.  The Police Activities League and like programs have been researched in the past; however, no extensive evaluation has ever been done....Click here to read more.
