New Program – Coffee Connection


The Commission for Women is excited to announce our newest initiative to build community on campus!

The Coffee Connection program pairs non-gender binary and those who identify as women with others on campus to facilitate personal and professional growth.

Participants will be matched with four individuals with whom to connect over the course of Spring semester. Create new relationships, deepen existing ones, and foster community; enjoy each other’s company while enjoying a coffee, a meal, or just a few minutes away from your work.

To participate, fill out the quick and easy form at Pairs will be announced in late January.

This program is open only to individuals who work on the UMD campus.



Welcome to the brand new UMD Commission for Women website! We decided that it was time for a fresh, new look for the Commission. As always, you’ll be able to find member information, meeting and event schedules, grant application information, resources for you to peruse, and how to support the Commission. We’re looking forward to the 2014-2015 academic year and welcoming several new faces to the Commission.
