Center for Minorities in Science and Engineering

“The support and community I gained from the Center for Minorities in Science and Engineering were key in helping me overcome the academic and social differences of a big school. It enlightened me to things I otherwise wouldn’t have managed as well.”

Maya Brin Institute for New Performance

“With remote performances and virtual performances, we have different ways of seeing art that don’t have to be in person. We can venture outside of traditional spaces and jump into a new wave of theater and dance. The Brin family’s gift supports that research.”

—Andres Poch MFA ’22

“Like no other moment in our history, we are poised to harness the collective power of our faculty, researchers, staff, students and nearly 400,000 alumni around the world to take on the grand challenges of our time. That is both the legacy of FEARLESS IDEAS ... and the future of the University of Maryland.” -President Darryll J. Pines
