The Center for Criminal Justice Reform was created with a generous donation from alumnus Samuel G. Rose, LL.B. ’62, a retired commercial real estate developer.
Rose attended the School of Law at night. He enjoyed a highly successful career in commercial real estate, largely in metropolitan Washington, D.C., and worked for corporations including the Rouse Co. and the American Trading & Production Corp. He currently serves as a member of The University of Baltimore's President's Council, and previously served as vice chair of the board of directors for the Smithsonian American Art Museum. He has long credited his law degree as instrumental in his professional success.
Rose also has made significant donations to support undergraduate scholarships at the University.
