This event will take place in UMBC’s new Performing Arts and Humanities Building, with the morning speaker in lecture hall 132 and the sessions in nearby rooms 108 and 124.

For morning check-in, we recommend entering the building near our concert hall, which is the entrance closest to parking lot 22. Look for event signage. Room 123 and the Dresher Center Conference Room on the second floor are available as needed for smaller conversations during lunch and throughout the day.
