The University of Maryland announced January 7 that all faculty, staff and students will be required to remain up to date with the vaccine mandate by obtaining an mRNA (Pfizer or Moderna) vaccine booster by Jan. 24 or within 14 days of becoming eligible. They must be tested by a rapid antigen test (including home tests) no more than 48 hours before coming to campus on Jan. 24. The indoor mask-wearing mandate from Prince George’s County remains in effect.
January Highlights with Dean Prabhudev Konana
We’ve had an incredible year at Maryland Smith, with Van Munching Hall and our other campuses coming back to life with in-person classes and all kinds of inspiring experiences for our students. Now we’re looking forward to new challenges, and in 2022, increasing engagement with our alumni and their companies is one of our highest priorities.
Maryland Smith is as successful as our alumni, and I’ve been so pleased to meet many of you over the past several months, from those who recently graduated to those who were here in the 1960s!
