The Commission on Equity Race & Ethnicity (CERE) works to create an equitable campus community for people of all racial, ethnic, and intersecting identities through education and institutional change. CERE works to promote inclusivity and equity on UMD's campus through advocacy, conducting small events, and through our annual Summit on Equity, Race, and Ethnicity.
