At UMBC, we welcome and celebrate our diverse community of students, staff, faculty, and alumni. We strive to create an inclusive atmosphere that respects the broad spectrum of identities and backgrounds of all Retrievers. Inclusivity begins with our language. Allowing students to choose the language that best represents them is an important part of UMBC’s commitment to inclusive and affirming language.
Thank you for your partnership in creating a more inclusive environment in your classrooms and work spaces across campus and virtually.
