UMBC is one of the most diverse campuses in the nation, and we value the richness that such diversity brings to campus life. The Initiatives for Identity, Inclusion & Belonging creates opportunities for students to build their awareness and knowledge of diverse people, cultures and belief systems. Through facilitated discussions, informal gatherings, educational engagements, presentations and campus-wide events, individual students, student organizations and classes learn the skills to create inclusive, just and mutually respectful communities at UMBC and beyond.
