The Maryland Information Technology Center (MITC), a Maryland 501 (c)(3) Corporation is located on the campus of the University of Maryland, University College Shady Grove Campus, Rockville, Maryland. MITC is actively working in close coordination with State & local agencies, academic institutions, and industry to promote the widest possible employment of modern technology in education and economic development. 

The regional business environment in which Maryland competes is intense.  In this environment, MITC reaches statewide to assist and respond to local jurisdictions' request for coordination and management support. 

MITC does not offer a "business as usual approach", indeed MITC actively reaches out to find business, economic development, education and citizen access opportunities.
