As of July 1, 2020 Retriever Immigrants United (RIU) became inactive as a student organization. See this post for details. RIU is a is a discussion-based program that centers the experiences of UMBC community members who identify as first, 1.5, or second-generation immigrants regardless of race, ethnicity, nationality, and/or citizenship status. This structured, topic-based program discusses the diverse immigrant experiences with a focus on intersectionality, community building, and social justice while providing a safe space for UMBC immigrant students, staff, faculty, and alumni to share their feelings and experiences with other members.
This session will focus on celebrating our heritage, our languages, and honor our loved-ones as we wind down for the winter break. *Please note that this group centers immigrants and the immigrant experience. This is subject to change according to attendees and potential future event opportunities and initiatives for allies.
All undergrads, grads, staff, faculty, and alumni are encouraged to attend! For any questions, please email Carlos Turcios, Coordinator for Student Diversity and Inclusion at email@example.com or i3b firstname.lastname@example.org.
This workshop is co-sponsored by i3b and the UMBC Counseling Center.
