Connect with a Stranger in Gaza, Rwanda or Honduras Today or Tomorrow from the Clarice!

A special way to celebrate International Education Week 2016 at UMD is to visit the UMDPortal.  The Portal connects you with people in cities around the world through video conferencing equipment inside a gold shipping container. The design lets you feel like you and someone in another country are having a face to face conversation. Today we are live from 9 am - 1 pm with community centers in Gaza and Rwanda. Then on Friday we are live with Honduras (their Portal is at a university) from 11 am - 1pm. The Portal is located outside The Clarice on Alumni Drive.
