We’ve Moved! START HQ located at 8400 Baltimore Ave
This month START Headquarters packed up its offices in Symons Hall and moved to the second floor of the University of Maryland’s Route 1 Annex, adjacent to campus at 8400 Baltimore Avenue, Suite 250, College Park, MD 20740.
The new facilities give START 40 percent more space with room to expand and a greater ability to host events. Located close to student housing and parking, as well as campus shuttles and public bus routes, the new offices will help make START more accessible to student interns and visitors alike.
“START is a multifaceted organization and that gives us tremendous strength even when negotiating fiscal cliffs and looming sequesters,” said Bill Braniff, START’s executive director. “Our extended research network is a key strength, but our research team at the University of Maryland has matured alongside of that network. We are currently hosting 80 undergraduate and graduate interns working in a new, integrated workspace that allows for new levels of collaboration among our research staff and administrators. The new workspace reflects both a dynamic and a mature organization, and we’re excited about both.”
