Rainbow Terps Task Force

The Rainbow Terps Task Force is a coalition open to students, staff, and faculty at UMD committed to transforming the campus into a more inclusive and affirming place for LGBTQ+ individuals. While our work touches on a broad variety of issues, our current focus area is to improve restroom access for trans folks, particularly by increasing the capacity of all gender bathrooms in critical areas of need on campus.
The Task Force will meet monthly during Spring 2019 to move forward in this objective on the following Fridays from 1:30-3pm: May 10. If you have the interest and time in joining us, please sign up here
Date/time: Fridays 1:30-3pm
