The Institute for Urban Policy Research & Analysis (the policy institute housed in Black Studies) is putting on our inaugural annual community and policy action group. This years event is titled ‘Can We Live? Addressing Negative Birth Outcomes for Black Women.’ Here is a link to register or to read more about it:

We are asking faculty, staff, graduate and undergraduate students who would be interested in volunteering to please email me, Naomi at

We need help with onsite registration, greeters, maintaining flow of traffic, and answering questions.

I’m pleased to announce that we’re conducting a study abroad course June 3-26, 2016 in Thailand, entitled Leading for LGBTQ+ Empowerment. The course is 3 credits, is open to both undergraduate and graduate students, and run through the University of Maryland (UMD) but open to students at other institutions.
The online brochure, information, and application are available here:
I will send a few more emails to the Consortium list in the coming months about this course, but if you or someone on your campus would like to be added to our contact list for reminders or updates about this course, please fill out this form:
The course is listed through our College of Education, but it will also be cross listed with Asian American Studies and other departments; the course is interdisciplinary and could be seen as addressing leadership studies, organizational and movement studies, cultural and cross-cultural studies, public policy and international development, public health, and potentially other subjects where students identify an interest. For students outside of UMD, they will have to check with their institutions on the transferability of credit, but it should generally be possible.
Please feel free to get in touch with me. I am the Program Director and instructor of record for this course, and I can answer questions in greater detail than the information available on the website.
