University of Maryland has canceled all in-person study abroad programs for the Spring 2021 semester, out of concern for health and safety during the COVID-19 pandemic, Associate Vice President for International Affairs Ross Lewin announced today.
The decision, which follows the cancellation of Fall 2020 and Winter 2021 Education Abroad programs, was made in coordination with the International Risk Management Committee and Senior Vice President and Provost Mary Ann Rankin.
Lewin said his office will proactively collaborate with academic departments and programs to develop engaging, project-based virtual opportunities for students to prepare them to become impactful global professionals and citizens. It will add an expanded list of global learning resources and opportunities at go.umd.edu/stayglobalumd.
