About UMBC Together

Our UMBC community is navigating a host of challenges that have shifted our personal and professional lives during the COVID-19 pandemic. Through the UMBC Together working group and this myUMBC group, we will share innovative ways of acknowledging and celebrating our community during a time when people need to feel connected more than ever. We will also develop and share information, resources, and strategies to help members of the UMBC community respond to, withstand, and recover from these traumatic and stressful experiences, and continue to thrive during the physical campus closure.

It is our hope that even during these difficult times of change, uncertainty, unpredictability, and surprise, that our UMBC community may reach together in learning how to cope effectively and learn from this experience.
