Maryland enjoys a collaborative system of higher education that promotes efficiency and improves student success. This system is fostered through funding formulas that link public and private, two-year and four-year institutions. Maryland's institutions of higher education, public and private, produce the knowledge and conduct the research underpinning the State's economy. These activities contribute to Maryland's quality of life and standard of living.
Maryland is one of the most highly competitive states in the nation, ranking second in bachelor's degree attainment. With a median household income of more than $64,000, Maryland ranks third nationally, according to 2010 U.S. Census data.
