Community Outreach

The Staff Senate is accepting financial donations for our outreach projects at our secure page.

Community Outreach Committee Goals for 2018-2019

One of our favorite and most successful community projects is the Back-to-School supply drive. We have big blue donations totes placed in every school and several administration buildings collecting back-to-school supplies for the UMB partner elementary schools on Baltimore’s Westside.

Throughout the next year, we also will continue to volunteer our time and resources in collaboration with Ashley Valis, Robin Saunders, Bill Joyner, and Brian Sturdivant to enhance the work of the UMB Community Engagement Center and the CURE Scholars program.

We will be announcing other projects during the year in The Elm.

Current Project
