As the University of Maryland continues its work to combat hate and create a safer campus, members of the UMD community reflected on these fraught times in our country and community.

People from across the spectrum of our community—faculty, staff, students and alumni—provided their thoughts on hate in America and on college campuses, and how institutions and individuals can find a path forward.

Transcripts of the interviews can be found at https://go.umd.edu/healing-after-hate.

This video highlights thoughts from three participants, including Tamara Adams, UMD student and president of the Black Student Union; Jennifer Roberts, assistant professor of kinesiology in the School of Public Health; and Tarif Shraim, UMD’s Muslim chaplain.
