We mourn the lives lost in our University of Maryland community and feel deeply that all Terrapins should be honored for their contributions to our campus. The university's first Memorial Celebration, which will be held annually, will bring our community together to remember the lives of Maryland students, faculty, emeriti faculty, and staff who have passed. In joining together to remember, we mourn these recent losses as a community and lean on each other through this shared experience.
This ceremony is symbolic of what it means to be part of the Terrapin family, and we encourage all members of our community to join us. This year's celebration will honor students, faculty, emeriti faculty, and staff who passed away from January 2020 through April 2021 while enrolled at or working for the university.
A limited number of UMD community members may participate in person by invite only, based on current public health guidance. All COVID-19 safety measures will be followed and masks will be required.
Directions to the Memorial Chapel can be found here.
Parking will be available in Lot Y and along Chapel Lane and Regents Drive.
