The TerrapinSTRONG Symposium is an opportunity for faculty and staff to learn from each other about diversity, equity, inclusion, justice and belonging (DEIJB) topics. The annual campus conference day provides space to bridge the work of scholars, researchers and practitioners to create greater collaboration and to provide insights from all sides that may inform our work. Each year, the TerrapinSTRONG Symposium will select a theme and solicit presentation proposals from faculty and staff with expertise in the area.

The first TerrapinSTRONG Symposium theme is belonging.

We define belonging on campus as the understanding that faculty and staff members appreciate each other, feel welcome on campus, recognize themselves as important to the mission of the University of Maryland, and understand how their work contributes to the larger goals of higher education. We are bringing together specific UMD efforts to enhance belonging in conversation with scholarship and research related to belonging from any discipline.

The Symposium is a collaborative initiative of the Office of Diversity & Inclusion, Office of Faculty Affairs and University Human Resources.
