The University of Maryland has announced an initial action plan to combat hate and create a safer campus. This is just the beginning, and our action will continue.

  • Create a task force on hate-bias and campus safety.
  • Create a trained, rapid-response team for hate-bias incidents.
  • Increase funding for campus-wide diversity and inclusion efforts.
  • Affirm and demonstrate our core values of unity and respect as a university community.
  • Compile and publish an annual report on hate-bias incidents on campus.
  • Strengthen existing Intercollegiate Athletics policy to explicitly prohibit any hate-bias symbols or actions in any athletic venue.
  • Review our Code of Student Conduct to strengthen sanctions for hate and bias.
