On Tuesday, Sept. 8, the University of Maryland will launch a new university calendar that will streamline and replace the FYI and Free Stuff @ UMD calendars. Beginning Sept. 8, you will be able to submit your events to the new campus calendar for review and approval, much like the current process for FYI and Free Stuff @ UMD. On Sept. 8, if you visit this website, you will automatically be redirected to the new calendar. In addition, a new weekly email called UMD This Week will launch on Sept. 8, replacing the daily FYI email. UMD This Week will be delivered at the beginning of every week and will highlight top upcoming events. The email will include details on how to access the new calendar and how to submit events for approval. Questions? Email UMDevents@umd.edu.

What is the 'business case' for diversity? We have limited resources' so why focus time, attention and money on diversity? Simply put: to improve our performance! Operational decisions are informed by our perspective. Diversity adds to and broadens our perspectives, allowing us collectively to see solutions to our problems that would never otherwise occur to us. Thus, diversity is a pathway to better decisions and better outcomes...a pathway to improvement.
