Peace in Minds

More than 100 people gathered on the McKeldin Library steps in the early days of Russia’s full-scale invasion of Ukraine to call for peace. Students and staff from Ukraine, Russia, the U.S. and other countries around the world, as well as UMD President Darryll J. Pines (left), listened as Ukrainian Terps described in quiet, anguished voices the sufferings of their loved ones as refugees or hiding in bomb shelters. Since then, the campus has united to support the embattled nation, including collecting medical supplies, donating UMD police body armor and forming a Ukrainian student organization.
