President Jarrell Responds to Riot in Washington, D.C.

What follows is an excerpt from a letter to the UMB community from University President Bruce E. Jarrell, MD, FACS:

"The events in Washington, D.C., have made it very difficult to focus on things related to my job as president of the University of Maryland, Baltimore, in spite of the pandemic, but they also have allowed me to reflect quite a lot and gain perspective. ... What I have seen is unthinkable to me as an American. ... This is not my idea of democracy. I will not forget these feelings and the reality that goes with them."
