All University of Maryland students, faculty and staff are invited to attend a unique series of virtual Presidential Distinguished Forums featuring renowned experts working at the forefront of today's most pressing issues. From the COVID-19 pandemic and climate change to voter access and the social unrest that has led to the Black Lives Matter movement, current national and world events present unprecedented challenges, but also opportunities to explore new and better paths forward.

President Pines will be joined by Dr. Stephanie Evergreen, founder of Evergreen Data Academy, Fulbright scholar and internationally recognized data visualization and design expert. An unfaltering supporter of social and racial justice, Dr. Evergreen believes that "people who communicate effectively change hearts and minds."
