UMBC’s Work Challenging Structural Racism

OEI also serves as a central hub to support UMBC’s commitment to inclusive excellence. UMBC is committed to facing the challenge of understanding our position in society and our role in dismantling structural racism.

We know that a variety of departments and divisions have sponsored and are planning events to support our community during this time. We will be compiling and sharing these here. Please contact if you have an event or resource to share. If you have a myUMBC event page, please include the tag diversityandinclusion on your event so we can share it.
