Two Scholars Programs Receive New Do Good Campus Fund Awards

Dozens of projects were recently awarded $460,000 from the University of Maryland’s new Do Good Campus Fund. The Fund is part of a suite of new campuswide investments to expand the university's leadership and impact to advance the public good. These investments also include the Do Good Campus Strategic Leadership Council, composed of senior administrators from colleges, schools, and units across campus to celebrate the social impact already being made by faculty and staff across campus.

This year's 27 grantees include faculty, staff, and student groups and two recipients are Scholars programs. Congratulations to Justice and Legal Thought and Media, Self and Society!

Establishing Modular Programming in MLAW ($33,205)
College of Behavioral and Social Sciences
The MLAW program aims to refine and expand restorative justice education for the College Park Scholars’ Justice and Legal Thought program, MLAW minor courses and the Francis King Carey School of Law. The project will develop and integrate lessons into law courses that develop students’ ability to build relationships across differences and collaborate with local nonprofits serving refugees, a growing need in Prince George’s County.

Media, Self and Society Curriculum Revamp ($23,627)
Philip Merrill College of Journalism
The Media, Self and Society program in College Park Scholars will revamp its curriculum to provide opportunities for students to participate in service learning and experiential learning, such as partnering with local schools and libraries to promote media literacy and launching an Alternative Spring Break to create educational media content along the Harriet Tubman Underground Railroad Historic Byway.
