Year of Immigration: 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.
