UMGC's Asian Collection, consisting of the Art of China Collection, the Japanese Art Collection, and Balinese prints, is one of the few collections of its kind in southern Maryland. This collection incorporates an outstanding portfolio of both traditional and contemporary Asian artwork and exemplifies UMGC's longstanding international presence.

In recognition of UMGC's excellent Asian Collection and the university's strong historical connection to Asia through its education programs for U.S. military servicemembers stationed in that part of the world, the Art of China Collection was established in 2000 with a gift of ancient Chinese paintings and artifacts from Maryland businessmen Thomas Li and I-Ling Chow. Iver Nelson, a Chicago businessman, expanded the collection with a donation of 15 works, including pieces from all the Chinese dynasties except the Xia dynasty. The Japanese Art Collection contains the largest assemblage of Yoshitoshi Mori's works in the United States, in addition to other Japanese prints.
