Retrievers Immigrants United (RIU) Information Meeting


The Commons : 2B23

Date & Time

September 25, 2023, 4:00 pm5:00 pm


Originally a social action and service student organization, Retriever Immigrants United (RIU) is now a self-care and advocacy discussion-based program that centers on the experiences of UMBC undergraduate students, graduate students, and staff who identify as first, 1.5, second-generation, or children of immigrants regardless of their race, ethnicity, nationality, and/or citizenship status.* This semi-structured, topic-based group discusses the diverse immigrant experience with a focus on the role identity plays on intersectionality, community building, and social justice, while also providing a safe/brave space for UMBC immigrant community members to share their feelings, experiences, and engage in vulnerable dialogue with other community members. 

This information meeting will provide UMBC community members an opportunity to meet with the facilitators, learn more about RIU, the schedule and ask any questions in relation to RIU.
