The University of Maryland, Baltimore County is proud to present a program called INTERACT.

A collaboration between the Division of Student Affairs and the Modern Languages, Linguistics, and Intercultural Communication Department at UMBC. INTERACT is based on providing our 1st Year residential students with specific training in intercultural communication and authenticity. As a university focused on innovation and ground-breaking research, it is the hope of this collaborative to enhance our incoming student’s confidence and competence in diversity and inclusion in order to prepare them for their time at UMBC and beyond.
