What defines us is not whether crises happen, but how we respond to them. How is UMBC continuing to redefine excellence in higher education at the intersection of the COVID-19 pandemic, the Black Lives Matter movement, and economic disruption?
Faculty, staff, and students are invited to share your stories and learn together in a series of virtual gatherings during the 2020-2021 academic year, beginning with:
The Empowered University: Shared Leadership, Culture Change, and Academic Success in a Pivotal Time
The Annual UMBC Fall Opening Meeting
Thursday, August 20, 2020
11:30-12:45 p.m. via WebEx
Start with Virtual Conversations and Real Coffee
To help kick off our Fall Opening Meeting on August 20, unmute and enjoy informal conversation with colleagues over coffee from OCA Mocha, UMBC’s community-building coffee shop in Arbutus, from 11:30 to 11:45 a.m. All faculty, staff, and students who register for the Fall Opening meeting will be invited to enjoy a complimentary beverage from OCA Mocha.
