A Bridge to Academic Excellence’s mission is to provide tutoring and mentoring for middle/high school students in the Baltimore Metro area.


Because of the interdisciplinary nature of ABAE, students are drawn from programs in pharmacy, law, medicine, physical therapy, and dentistry to serve as tutors. This unique opportunity to give back to the community also provides the tutors the chance to learn more about their own profession and the professions of the other tutors with whom they work and to meet pharmacy faculty and practitioners. ABAE goals are:

  • To plan, coordinate, and implement activities to enhance the interest in and success rate of applicants in the health professions, law and social work
  • To have professional school students serve as tutors and mentors to high school students
  • To reward middle/high school students for producing successful learning outcomes
  • To unite professional school students and student organizations on the University's campus to work together in teams as they will as professionals
