The College had modest beginnings in the former Carver School on Frederick Street, where the first students were enrolled in September 1961. Today, the College has a “modern and spacious” campus in suburban Cumberland.
The 316-acre campus includes 15 buildings, which provide modern facilities for both credit and non-credit students. Facilities and equipment are consistent with and designed to maintain the high academic standards of the College. In addition to the Learning Commons-Library, Humanities, and Science buildings, there is a College Center which houses the student lounge, dining facilities, a 400-seat theatre, Admissions and Registration, Financial Aid, Student and Legal Affairs, Institutional Research, Advising Center, Instructional Affairs, and the Business Office. The campus also includes a Physical Education Building, which houses a large gymnasium and indoor swimming pool. The Technology building houses instructional and laboratory facilities for several of the career technology programs in addition to the Information Technology Center and the eLearning and Education Technology Services department. The Continuing Education building houses classrooms and meeting rooms for conferences, workshops, and seminars. The majority of the College’s credit health programs are located in the Allied Health Building. The Automotive Technology building houses the Automotive Technology program. Behind the Automotive building are the services building, the workforce building, transportation building, and a storage facility. The Advancement Building houses the ACM Foundation office, public relations, marketing departments, and the College bookstore.
In 1990 the College began offering evening only classes leading to associate degree and certificate programs in the Everett Area High School. Then in 1994 a building was constructed to house the Bedford County Campus. The facility is located on seven acres with a 110 space parking area adjacent to the campus. The building uses a unique geothermal HVAC system that has allowed operating costs to remain at a minimum. The $2.3 million facility was provided through funding from the Bedford County Commissioners, the Southern Tier Education Council, and the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania with the land leased by the Everett Area School District. The Bedford County Regional Education Foundation has provided total financial support for furnishing the campus facility. The 19,500 square foot facility located in Everett, Pennsylvania, houses ten classrooms including two computer labs and three telecourse classrooms; learning commons, student lounge, conference room and faculty offices. Administrative offices on campus also include student services, testing lab, career planning, transfer advising, and Foundation.
An agreement entered into in 2000 established the Bedford County Technical Center as the Allegany College of Maryland Bedford County Technical Center Campus. This 25,000 square-foot building has facilities for a variety of technical training and education. It houses areas for automotive, building trades, metalworking, welding, health technologies, cosmetology, foods/hospitality, and computer use and repair. The Bedford Area and Everett Area School Districts own the Technical Center. The agreement makes the building available to Allegany College of Maryland for credit programs, continuing education, and workforce development in Bedford County. The Bedford County Campus provides academic support to technical students. The College’s office of Workforce Development and Training is housed at the Technical Center. A portion of the 4,800 square-foot training facility completed in 2002 adjacent to the Technical Center houses an additional computer lab and lab/classroom for the nursing program. The remaining area of the facility will allow for additional development as future needs warrant. The Bedford County Technical Center expanded their facility to include science classrooms and labs. As a result of the cooperative agreement with the Bedford County Technical Center, the college offers both day and evening science lab classes.
Allegany College of Maryland Nursing program has an off-site location in Oakland, Garrett County, Maryland. The site is behind Garrett Regional Medical Center (GRMC). This program started in 2008 at the request of GRMC. Students have class in a private setting. The building has a classroom, a campus lab, and a lounge area for students. This site has all the conveniences and learning opportunities offered at our other two campus locations. The program accepts 20 students every other year starting in the spring semester of odd years.
The School of Hospitality Management and Culinary Arts, in the Gateway Center in downtown Cumberland, gives the college a public profile off campus and a role in the area’s hospitality and tourism sector and economic development. Located at 110-114 Baltimore Street, the formerly county-owned building was renovated with college and federal Appalachian Regional Commission funds. The three-story structure houses the Culinaire Café, a student-run, chef-supervised restaurant that serves lunch Tuesday through Friday when classes are in session. Art work exhibited in the café’s Gilchrist Gallery adds to the atmosphere of the attractive dining room. The popular street-level eatery provides valuable hands-on experience in all facets of restaurant operations for both culinary arts and hospitality management students. On the second floor the college has developed, with support from the U.S. Department of Agriculture, an information technology and business training facility for business owners and their employees in the downtown and at Canal Place. This space, consisting of two 30-seat classrooms and a meeting room with latest-generation instructional technology, allows for training sessions and courses through ACM’s Center for Continuing Education and Workforce Development. On the third floor is Allegany County’s Adult Basic Education Program, which offers preparation for high school equivalency and literacy services for family and workforce development. These efforts, by ACM’s Center for Continuing Education and Workforce Development, are funded by the Maryland Department of Labor, Licensing and Regulation and the U.S. Department of Education.
The Somerset Education Site was established in 2017 in support of its Early College program, which offers college-level courses to high school students. This effort has enriched the secondary education curriculum in Somerset County for more than two decades. With the support of principals and school district superintendents, multiple Somerset County high schools host college-level courses for high school juniors and seniors to add to their regular academic curricula each semester.
In addition, open enrollment coursework is offered during the Fall and Spring semesters to students enrolled at the Cumberland or Bedford County campuses and the general public. ACM staff the local office, which is located at the Somerset County Technology Center on Technology Drive.
