Spring 2021 Faculty Resource Guide

Dear UMD faculty member,

Your teaching, research, outreach, engagement and service has continued, even in these uncertain times, to positively impact our students and the communities we serve in Maryland and throughout the country and the world. Thank you for your dedication and commitment.

When we distributed the first Faculty Resource Guide in 2016, it was our goal to support Maryland faculty members by making it easier to find relevant guidance and support not just from our office but from talented, dedicated colleagues in other units across the university. While we have had to maintain our physical distances, this past year has brought us closer together as we have helped each other overcome pandemic challenges to collectively continue to advance our beloved university. We are in awe of how faculty and staff have collaborated to support students, their families and the public at large, exemplifying what it means to be #TerrapinSTRONG.

The Faculty Resource Guide is an annual publication of the Office of General Counsel. It presents FAQs related to teaching, supporting students, conducting research, and other common scenarios, and provides hotlinks to relevant web-based information and to offices that can provide faculty with assistance on a wide range of topics.

It is our privilege to be your law firm. We look forward to working with you and your colleagues. Please continue to stay safe and healthy, and best wishes on all fronts.

Sincerely, The Office of General Counsel
