Take part in a fearless Terp tradition when you give back and Do Good through volunteering. Every April, alumni from California to Connecticut unite to do good in their communities, and you’re invited to take part in the action. Join with fellow alumni in your area to show how Terps give back during Do Good Service Month. This year, we will unite to do good through a series of regional events and virtual programs.

With each challenge and barrier faced this last year, UMD students thought critically and rose to the occasion. Whether on campus or at-home, Terps spent the year advocating, fundraising, volunteering, and developing solutions for pressing social issues. This year, your Alumni Association, in partnership with the Do Good Institute, invites alumni to vote for the challenge winners. Meet this year's finalists Voting is now open through April 15. Submit your vote here.
