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

Rise Above "-Isms"

When: Thursday, November 07, 2013 5:15 PM - Thursday, November 14, 2013 5:15 PM
Event Type(s): Diversity

The Office of Diversity & Inclusion (ODI) is sponsoring a weeklong series of events to engage the entire campus community in a transformative dialogue on the "-isms", their devastating effects, and how we can collectively move beyond them. The week from November 11 to 14, entitled "Rise Above '-isms'", will offer a number of educational opportunities for all members of the campus community. The programs will use various learning modalities and methods to actively challenge entrenched attitudes and facilitate authentic conversations on this sensitive issue. ODI hopes to stimulate students, staff, and faculty to consider our own biases and stereotypes, to explore their impact on our campus community and the world beyond, and to commit to fully embracing equity, diversity and inclusion.
