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 Would You Do with $500M for a New Science Program?
Join Chris Elfring, The Gulf Program, National Academy of Sciences for discussion on the Initial Program Planning for the New NAS Gulf of Mexico Program. As part of a settlement agreement resolving criminal charges against the BP and Transocean, the NAS has been charged to establish a new $500 million program on human health and environmental protection in the Gulf of Mexico. The program is to focus on "human health and environmental protection in the Gulf of Mexico and on the United States' outer continental shelf, including issues relating to offshore oil drilling and hydrocarbon production and transportation."
