Latest Announcements

Poster Making Event

We have reserved AV Williams 1146 on April 19 from 2-5pm to make posters for the March. We will have some poster making materials (poster boards, markers, etc), but please feel free to bring your own or even some to share.

UMD Shuttle in Operation for March

Shuttle-UM will be running buses between Stamp Student Union and Prince George's Plaza Metro every 12 minutes on Saturday April 22, from 7am until 8pm, the UMD Department of Transportation has announced. This will help Shuttle-UM riders reach the March for Science. The shuttle service to PG Plaza station is necessary because College Park Metro Station will be closed for repairs. The buses will display "Special Metro Express" on the destination signs, and they are open to the public. NextBus will show arrival times for these buses under route name "Special Metro Express."

Why are We Marching?

In Support of Science

The March for Science is a celebration of science. It's not about scientists or politicians; it is about the very real role that science plays in each of our lives and the need to respect and encourage research that gives us insight into the world. Nevertheless, the march has generated a great deal of conversation around whether or not scientists should involve themselves in politics. In the face of an alarming trend toward discrediting scientific consensus and restricting scientific discovery, we might ask instead: can we afford not to speak out in its defense?

The March for Science, which is supported by the American Association for the Advancement of Science, the American Geophysical Union, the American Physical Society and 25 other organizations of scientists, will be holding a teach-in and rally on the National Mall in Washington DC on April 22, 2017.
