Office of Diversity and Equity

At University of Maryland Global Campus, we seek to reflect the diversity of the global community. Cultural differences are recognized, valued, and considered essential to the education process and working environment. We promote understanding and mutual respect of all members of the community and provide an academic and social environment that encourages new ideas, an eagerness to learn, and positive working conditions.

Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Strategic Plan

This plan is designed to strategically align diversity with initiatives, processes, and programmatic plans across the university while simultaneously supporting, expanding on, and aligning with work currently underway in key functional areas.

Heritage Month Programs

By exploring the many diverse heritages, cultures, and histories of people around us, we can discover new ways of thinking. We can celebrate our similarities and differences. We can learn how to interact with the diversity of people we meet in our everyday lives. UMGC offers many opportunities to experience and enjoy our rich heritage and diverse community, including our heritage month programs. It's one more way we honor our commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion.
