We encourage those who have observed or experienced sexual violence/misconduct to seek support as needed at any time. For emergency situations, contact campus police via 410-455-5555 or local police via 911.


It takes a courageous community to make a lasting impact on sexual assault here at UMBC and beyond. Change requires the courage to SPEAK OUT, to LISTEN, to LEARN, and to TAKE ACTION. We are grateful for the courage of the community members who have shared their experiences of sexual assault and harassment. We must fully live our campus values – INCLUSIVE EXCELLENCE, COLLABORATION, INNOVATION, and IMPACT – to make UMBC a safer, more caring living, learning, and working environment for all. We commit to reach together and do better because this is urgent work that impacts us all.
