A talk by Fern Shen, Founder and Editor, Baltimore Brew on Wed, April 8th, 12-1:00 pm in the Albin O. Kuhn Library Gallery.
Shen is an award-winning reporter who wrote for The Washington Post, Baltimore Evening Sun and Hartford Courant. In 2009 – with mainstream media here and across the country suddenly cutting back, laying off and shutting down — Shen struck off into somewhat uncharted territory by founding Baltimore Brew – an online-only news website with reported news stories, culture and community dialogue.

Zeevelle Nottingham-Lemon, an assistant director for the Choice Program at UMBC, has been selected by Baltimore Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake’s Baltimorphosis Committee as a Baltimorphosis Changemaker. Changemakers are selected because of their impact on violence prevention in their communities.
Zeevelle was selected for the work she has been doing spearheading the Choice Program’s Youth in Action project. Four adults and eight youth living in Baltimore City were chosen as Baltimorphosis Changemakers. They were honored on Wednesday, March 25 from 5:30-7:30 p.m. at the Baltimore City Hall Rotunda. The ceremony took place during Youth Violence Prevention Week.
UMBC is among more than 120 U.S. engineering programs leading a transformative movement in engineering education announced at the White House today.
In a letter presented to President Barack Obama, UMBC and peer institutions committed to establish special educational programs designed to prepare undergraduates to solve “Grand Challenges.” These challenges are complex yet achievable goals to improve national and international health, security (including cybersecurity), sustainability, and quality of life in the 21st century.
Together, the schools plan to graduate more than 20,000 formally recognized “Grand Challenge Engineers” over the next decade.
Dean Julia Ross, of UMBC’s College of Engineering and Information Technology (pictured below), will represent UMBC at a special meeting of the White House and National Academy of Engineering to discuss this commitment on March 24, 2015.
