Beyond the Vote

How do we engage in democracy if we cannot vote?

The Women’s Center

The Women’s Center at UMBC advances gender equity from an intersectional feminist perspective through co-curricular programming, support services, and advocacy for marginalized individuals and communities. They prioritize critical social justice as our community value, with a deliberate focus on women, gender, anti-racism, and feminism.

The Shriver Center

The Shriver Center addresses critical social challenges by bridging campus and community through engaged scholarship and applied learning, to lead meaningful change through transformational higher education and community partnership.

Center for Democracy and Civic Life

The Center for Democracy and Civic Life helps people develop the knowledge, skills, and dispositions to create healthy communities and tackle challenges together. Their work builds from the premise that civic life encompasses everyday settings and relationships through which people can generate the power to shape their world.

Retriever Essentials

Retriever Essentials works to develop a comprehensive program of resources, that works to eliminate the burden of food insecurity for UMBC members and connect them to ongoing support networks, in order to enhance their academic retention and career success.

Legislative Concerns Chair, Daniel Douglas, is the GSA representative to the RE Advisory Board. Graduate students with concerns regarding Retriver Essentials may contact Daniel.

Community Affairs (Oca Mocha)

GSA Legislative Concerns also assists with UMBC student representation to the local communities of Catonsville and Arbutus. Through UMBC’s partnership with Oca Mocha, graduate students living in the local community may become more connected to community affairs.
