#STAMPisHERE for You

Welcome to STAMP: 

Access and Mask Restrictions Lifted for the Summer


In alignment with the University of Maryland lifting COVID-19 related restrictions on May 31, STAMP has lifted access, capacity and mask restrictions in our building. As a result, visitors will see several changes throughout the STAMP and around the UMD campus in the days and weeks ahead.  


In the STAMP, visitors will notice some of the following changes:


  • Given the latest public health guidance that includes the lifting of restrictions on physical distancing and mask wearing (for vaccinated individuals), the 4Maryland signage materials are no longer accurate and campus leadership has determined that all 4Maryland signage should be removed as soon as practical. Signage such as floor decals for physical distancing, one way arrows, elevator signs and temporary room capacity signs will be removed.
  • Employees, students and guests in UMD facilities will no longer be required to wear face masks inside or outside of the STAMP.
  • Furniture will be returned to the food court, lounge spaces and other common areas gradually over the coming weeks as we plan for rearranged seating areas to make our guests as comfortable as possible while transitioning back to a sense of normalcy.


STAMP continues to provide a safe space for the community with safety and cleaning/disinfecting protocols guided by the CDC and state/county recommendations. 






STAMP AAPI Cross-Racial Solidarity Statement


March 2021


At the one-year mark of the global pandemic and the witnessing of an historic reckoning of systemic racism, we at the Adele H. Stamp Student Union — Center for Campus Life (STAMP) are reminded of the important, collective work we still must do to support and live the mission to which we are committed: "To provide a safe and inviting campus center where all UMD students, alumni, faculty, staff, and community members cultivate lifelong relationships founded on engagement, learning, multiculturalism, and citizenship."


With reports of violence against the Asian Pacific Islander Desi American (APIDA) community rising across the nation, we recognize that the elements and factors leading to the Anti-Asian violence are a part of the larger systems of oppression, white supremacy, capitalism, and the pitting of people against one another.


At the University of Maryland, we value Asian Americans as important members of our society who contribute rich resources to our campus community through research, work, teaching, and scholarship (reiterated and reaffirmed in the March 4, 2021 campus-wide email from Dr. Georgina Dodge, Vice President for Diversity and Inclusion, and Dr. Patty Perillo, Vice President for Student Affairs; and in the Feb. 26, 2021 letter from Dr. Patty Perillo, Vice President for Student Affairs, to the Division of Student Affairs).

CANDID: Unmask Yourself Exhibition July 19 - August 18, 2021

posted on July 19, 2021

COVID-19 has wreaked havoc on our lives, and adolescents are facing the brunt of the worsened mental health epidemic brought along with it. CANDID: Unmask Yourself is a collaborative effort between curator Aadya Sharma, UMD ‘23 and 7 other UMD students to create theatrical masks as a cathartic experience to share their stories. Being seen and having their mental health experiences recognized is especially difficult for adolescents -- if people judge based on appearances, why not craft an appearance that best represents you?

Visitors to the exhibition will have the opportunity to create and share their own artworks in dialogue with the exhibition.

Exhibition dates: July 19 - August 18
Gallery Hours: Monday - Friday 12-5 pm

Fall 2021 New Mentor Applications - NOW OPEN!

posted on April 27, 2021

Maryland Mentor Corps is now recruiting Fall 2021 Mentors for the Maryland Reading Program, Maryland Math Program, and Maryland Family Literacy Program! 

**NOTE**  Currently, Maryland Mentor Corps has not yet determined if our programs will operate in-person, virtually, or in a hybrid model for Fall 2021. We must wait for UMD and Prince George's County Public Schools to make certain decisions that will dictate our program implementation.

The mission of the Maryland Mentor Corps (formerly known as America Reads*America Counts*Partners in Print), a partnership between the University of Maryland and Prince George's County Public Schools, is to provide high quality mentoring in local schools that enriches learning opportunities for both college and elementary school students. 

The Maryland Mentor Corps aims to: 

  • Provide a strong mentoring and tutoring experience for elementary school children in the Prince George’s County Public Schools, ultimately helping more children be successful in reading and math and reducing the impact of the educational opportunity gap

  • Help University of Maryland students understand the complexities of public K through 12 education and empower them to be education advocates

  • Provide University of Maryland students with the opportunity for work experience, especially in the area of teaching, and provide professional development in teaching and leadership

  • Enhance the relationship between the University of Maryland and its home community, Prince George’s County 

The Maryland Mentor Corps (MMC) is home to three programs:

► Maryland Reading Program (formerly America Reads): Mentors work one-on-one with 1st and 2nd grade students who are struggling with reading.

Shifts Available: Monday through Thursday; 7:30 a.m. - 10:30 a.m, every week of the semester.

► Maryland Math Program (formerly America Counts): Mentors work 1:1 or in small groups with 4th graders who are struggling with math.

Shifts Available: Monday through Thursday; 2:00 p.m. – 5:00 p.m., every week of the semester.

►Maryland Family Literacy Program: Mentors develop programming to support local families with young children. Speakers of languages including Spanish, French, Amharic, or languages of Western Africa are highly desired!

Shifts Available: Monday through Thursday; 5:30 p.m. - 8:30 p.m., and potential Saturday shifts, every week of the semester.

Applications will be accepted on a rolling basis through September 5, 2021.

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.
