UMD President Darryll J. Pines, Vice President for Diversity and Inclusion Georgina Dodge, Vice President for Student Affairs Patty Perillo and Director of Athletics Damon Evans sent the following email to the campus community this morning: We have witnessed increasing incidences of transgender people publically harassed and ridiculed, and there has been an avalanche of antitransgender legislation proposed in dozens of states.
