His leadership while President of the Southern Maryland Navy Alliance, also helped to bring the University System of Maryland to the Southern Maryland region with an anticipated $85 million Academic and Research, Development and Technology Innovation complex at the University System of Maryland at Southern Maryland. This new multi-million dollar center will fuel technology innovation, transfer and commercialization, and new startups. It will also significantly strengthen the Southern Maryland region’s work force through education and training opportunities, grow better paying, higher quality professional careers and jobs, and diversify the region’s economy and industry base.
