Building Power for Environmental Justice
The eighth UMD Environmental Justice and Health Disparities Symposium was held August 11-13, 2022 and attended by hundreds of environmental organizers, community advocates, EJ leaders and elected officials. Participants focused on how to make the most of the moment to advance environmental health and racial justice, while also drawing inspiration from past struggles.

Staying Healthy on Campus
While wearing a mask is no longer required while indoors in most situations, masks are a significant defense against the spread of COVID-19 and other respiratory viruses. The School of Public Health recommends wearing a KN95 mask (or similar) while indoors for added protection. Masks will continue to be required in all patient care areas, including the University Health Center.
