Together Beyond

Together Beyond programs are reflective, guided conversations about national and global events affecting members of the UMBC community. The Center for Democracy and Civic Life developed Together Beyond’s facilitation structure in partnership with UMBC’s Initiatives for Identity, Inclusion & Belonging (i3b), Counseling Center, and leading campus educators in the use of restorative practices.

Together Beyond topics have included:

  • Election 2020
  • The COVID-19 pandemic
  • The January 6, 2021 insurrection
  • The Supreme Court’s decision to overturn Roe v. Wade
