Powered by the University LibrariesStarting in 2015, the Interdisciplinary Dialogues have addressed such important issues as income inequality, immigration, social media and elections, and sex and gender in academia. 

Today, the climate crisis is propelling burning forests, rising sea levels, melting Arctic ice, and dying coral reefs. This defining crisis continues to charge human conflict, inequity, and disruption.

Join us for a conversation on how University of Maryland researchers are exploring, uncovering, and tackling these challenges locally and abroad.
