Retriever Courage

It takes a courageous community to make a lasting impact on sexual assault here at UMBC and beyond. Change requires the courage to SPEAK OUT, to LISTEN, to LEARN, and to TAKE ACTION. We are grateful for the courage of the community members who have shared their experiences of sexual assault and harassment. We must fully live our campus values – INCLUSIVE EXCELLENCE, COLLABORATION, INNOVATION, and IMPACT – to make UMBC a safer, more caring living, learning, and working environment for all. We commit to reach together and do better because this is urgent work that impacts us all.

The UMBC community is having important conversations about the prevention of and response to sexual violence/misconduct, and its impact on campus safety and well-being. We are proud of our students, faculty, staff, and alumni for sharing their experiences and working to help UMBC live out our values.

We are taking action on what we learn together, developing a productive dialogue, and creating a coordinated campus response to incidents of sexual and gender-based harassment and violence — a response that is proactive, caring, and inclusive.
