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).

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.

Amidst

April 12 - May 15, 2021

Free and Open to the Public

Artist Talk Thursday April 22 at 6pm

Register at stamp.umd.edu/AmidstArtistTalks

 

College Park, MD. This spring, the Stamp Gallery at the University of Maryland, College Park, presents Amidst, an exhibition featuring three artists in the second year of MFA candidacy in the Department of Art at the University of Maryland, College Park: Martin Gonzales, Elizabeth Katt, and Alyssa Imes.

 

In the artists' own words:

 

Our show came from a discussion of where and when we currently are.  We are in the middle of our graduate school experience. We are in the middle of a global pandemic which has changed everything in the past year. So, we decided on the word, Amidst.  We are Amidst all the peaks and valleys that come with pushing ourselves in creative directions. We are Amidst the pandemic with all of its uncertainty, challenges, and changes.  We are Amidst our angst.  We are Amidst our perseverance. We are Amidst and that can be an uncomfortable place to be.

 

This exhibition will include an artist talk with the artists April 22, 2021 at 6pm. There will also be an in-gallery art-based activity series for visitors to further explore topics around the artwork on view. Visit the Stamp Gallery’s website and social media for a up-to-date schedule of events at thestamp.umd.edu/gallery 

 

Elizabeth Katt will be performing and live streaming her piece, An Accounting, in the Stamp Gallery during the following dates and times: 

Tuesdays through May 11, 1pm-5pm
Thursdays through May 6, 11am-4pm
Saturday, May 8, 12pm-5pm
Saturday, May 15 starting at 1pm and completing with the last mark through Dec 31, 2020

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.
