The Safety Pin Initiative
This safety pin first appeared on our website in November 2016 after the U.S. presidential election. It was not meant to communicate political affiliation or alienate anyone. Its purpose was and remains very simple and can resonate with everyone: If you need me, I am here for you. I will stand in solidarity with you.
ISLSI is committed to ensuring that the UMB community can learn and work in an affirming, inclusive, and safe environment. With this in mind, we created The Safety Pin Initiative, an eight-session curriculum composed of short lectures and activities focused on equipping staff and faculty with the tools and foundational knowledge necessary to build allyship with people of various identities. You can apply for the Safety Pin Initiative here. For more information or to refer a staff or faculty member to the program, please complete this form.
If you have any questions or concerns, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
2018 - 2019 President's Student Leadership Institute
Now accepting applicants until Friday, Sept. 14, the President’s Student Leadership Institute is a co-curricular certificate program designed to help students strengthen their leadership skills and career readiness. If selected, candidates can focus on one of six paths in which they attend seminars and perform community service. The current paths are: Career Development, Effective Leadership, Entrepreneurship & Innovation, Inclusive Leadership, Scholarly Research & Teaching, and Wellness. Once completed, students receive a certificate signed by the University President and an interprofessional medallion to wear during commencement ceremonies.
Online, evening, and Shady Grove students have the option of signing up for our Inclusive Leadership Online path. This path provides leadership and diversity education to non-traditional students within the UMB community.

May is Asian American & Pacific Islander Heritage Month
May was selected to commemorate the arrival of the United States’ first Japanese immigrants May 7, 1843, and to mark the anniversary of the completion of the transcontinental railroad May 10, 1869. The latter held significance because the majority of the workers who laid the tracks were Chinese immigrants.
President's Symposium & White Paper
The President’s Fellows, a group of UMB students selected to explore the topic of Global Literacy, completed their white paper on the University’s role in educating students who are able to analyze and think critically about the world and their roles in it.
