The Action Teams
You are here
A group of University leaders, faculty, staff, and students, work to implement positive steps toward forming an ever more welcoming campus community.
Implementing Campus Climate Initiatives
UMD Campus Climate Teams: UMD has specific teams that work to create a campus culture that is welcoming and supportive to all who learn, work and visit the campus. The goal is a climate that incorporates social justice values of diversity, equity and inclusion in every aspect of the institution. The success of this effort depends on the entire campus becoming involved. Areas of concern are leadership at all levels, grassroots or unit efforts, resources, dialogue and collaboration, education and self-awareness, an organizational structure that promotes and supports campus change, and a model for institutional transformation.
This team provides oversight to all of the UMD Campus Climate Initiatives.
The Campus Change Team and Unit Change Teams
These teams meet throughout the year and do the on-the-ground work. They propose and carry out initiatives from the simple posters to wide-spread, campus-wide awareness projects.
Campus Climate Response Team
When an incident occurs, this team leaps into action and immediately convenes. They make recommendations for appropriate university response.
Support for UMD
Dozens of departments, programs, student groups and other entities support UMD's commitment to diversity and inclusion.
UMD Strategic Plan Goal 2: Create a positive and inclusive campus climate for all by advancing equity, diversity, and social justice.
