Stay Global UMD: Resources for Global Engagement

Stay Global UMD: Resources for Global Engagement

The ongoing worldwide health crisis has shaken our global community at UMD, but we forge ahead by staying home, staying connected, and staying global. During this unusual time, it becomes increasingly important to stay connected and to strengthen our virtual global community. The Office of International Affairs (OIA), Education Abroad (EA) and International Student & Scholar Services (ISSS) continue to work diligently to address the pressing needs of our community.

As we continue to provide support, we are also looking toward ways to foster cross-cultural education, exchange and conversation in this time of social distancing. We invite you to read on for more details and opportunities to engage globally below.
