Resources

Campus Involvement:

Multiracial and Biracial Student Association (MBSA)

MBSA is currently inactive- however you could be the one to bring it back! MBSA has been dedicated to providing a community for multiracial individuals to share personal experiences, embrace their different backgrounds, and spread awareness of mixed raced issues. Two of their signature events are the Diversity Feast and Film, and Multiracial Heritage Month. These have become two of the biggest student events on campus and both have served as bridges to learn more about issues of race, ethnicity, and diversity. If you are interested in restarting MBSA please contact Ashley Venneman, Manager, Student Organization Development
venneman@umd.edu 301-314-7168.

Campus Cultural Groups

There are over 80 culturally based student organizations on campus. Students seeking to learn more about aspects of their own identity or that of others are encouraged to participate in or attend the programs and activities of any of these groups. To learn more about these groups please visit http://orgsync.umd.edu/ and click on Browse Student Organizations.
