During this uncertain time, STAMP cares. Staying connected with our community is important, now more than ever. From virtual events, online office hours, continuous updates and linking you to campus resources, #STAMPisHERE for you. 

NEW UPDATE from the University Book Center:

  • University Book Center and Barnes & Noble have followed federal, state, and campus guidelines and have closed their doors to the public for the time being.
  • But they're still here to serve you—you can still order your Summer 2020 textbooks from shopterps.com 
  • The grace period for the return of Spring 2020 textbooks rented has been extended through the first week of the Fall 2020 semester. The University Book Center will not charge students who were unable to return their books in time.
  • If you're a graduating senior who's still interested in ordering commencement regalia, you can do so at https://umdcollegepark.shopoakhalli.com/purchasewizard/Welcome

  • Also from the University Book Center: FREE E-TEXTBOOKS FOR STUDENTS at stamp.umd.edu/virtualbooks 
  • Find a STAMP Staff Member. We're available M-F 8:30AM-5PM via phone and monitoring our emails regularly.
  • For Emergency Food or donations to members in our community in need: campuspantry.umd.edu/
  • The Student Crisis Fund provides emergency support to fellow Terps who need emergency shelter, transportation, clothing, and medical supplies. Support the Crisis Fund to ensure that our community continues to support Terps in need: crisisfund.umd.edu

MICA Land Acknowledgment

posted on March 06, 2020

Every community owes its existence and strength to the generations before them, around the world, who contributed their hopes, dreams, and energy into making the history that led to this moment. Some were brought here against their will, some were drawn to migrate from their homes in hope of a better life, and some have lived on this land for more generations than can be counted. Truth and acknowledgment are critical in building mutual respect and connections across all barriers of heritage and difference. 

At the office of Multicultural Involvement & Community Advocacy (MICA), we believe it is important to create dialogue to honor those that have been historically and systemically disenfranchised. So, we acknowledge the truth that is often buried: We are on the ancestral lands of the Piscataway People, who were among the first in the Western Hemisphere. We are on indigenous land that was stolen from the Piscataway People by European colonists. We pay respects to Piscataway elders and ancestors. Please take a moment to consider the many legacies of violence, displacement, migration, and settlement that bring us together here today.
