YEAR OF IM/MIGRATION: THEMED ACADEMIC YEAR FOR 2018-2019

In response to President Loh's call for initiatives that emphasize global citizenry, the College of Arts and Humanities is partnering with other campus units to create a themed year focused on issues pertaining to immigration, migration and refugees. A themed year on these critical areas will support several goals outlined in the University of Maryland's Strategic Plan:

  • help cultivate a more diverse, inclusive, and international culture at the heart of the university;
  • transform dialogue into doing good on a pressing social issue;
  • foster community engagement; and
  • make faculty, staff, and students better global citizens intent on improving the global common good.

ARHU, the Office of International Affairs, and ARHU's Center for Global Migration encourage broad participation from all academic units, centers, faculty, staff and students.

"As he arrived at the podium to deafening applause and a standing ovation, Bobby Seale raised his hands, stepped back and chuckled.

"'Reminds me of the '60s,' he said.

"Seale, the co-founder of the Black Panther Party, a political activist and a cultural icon, spoke at the University of Maryland on Thursday night about organized resistance and strength in the face of discrimination and oppression.

"'I don't believe in riots,' he said. 'I believe in organizing. I believe in putting my machine together.'"
