Here’s who (and how much snow) made the news this week:
- In case you hadn’t heard, it snowed a lot in Baltimore this past weekend, and UMBC was one of many schools affected by the record accumulation. Residential students were able to move in Wednesday, and spring semester classes began Thursday.
- Baltimore Sun columnist Dan Rodricks has some ideas on how the city might deal with future blizzards, and he references a conversation with Don Norris, public policy, about the pros and cons of regional governance.
- Kimberly Moffitt, American studies, discussed the influence of present events on this year’s Black History Month commemorations in and around the Baltimore area with the Sun. “If you think about it, history is occurring daily, right? So yesterday is history,” she says.
- Dr. Hrabowski granted an extensive interview to University Business for a story chronicling UMBC’s rise as a research institution committed to inclusive excellence.
