UMUC is participating along with other University System of Maryland institutions in Governor Hogan’s statewide initiative. When he announced the initiative in July, Governor Hogan said, “In the past few weeks, I have witnessed incredible acts of kindness and volunteerism from members of a community who truly care for one another. Maryland Unites: A Day of Service is about continuing that spirit of giving back and sharing it with Baltimore City and our local communities.”
