Maryland Faculty Awarded Grants for Innovative Diversity Initiatives

The University of Maryland School of Public Health has received funding for two new interdisciplinary projects: one that will train students to gather stories of celebrations and traditions at local barbershops which serve as health education venues, and transform them into art, and another which will create a more welcoming, respectful, and supportive campus environment for students, faculty, and staff with disabilities. The “Moving Maryland Forward” grants come from the university’s Office of Diversity and Inclusion.
