Resources for Parents and Family Members

As you know, UMBC is very active in promoting the health, safety and success of our students. We know that college drinking is a national problem – and that we are not immune. For the past several years, we have been working with the Maryland Collaborative to Reduce College Drinking and Related Problems to implement strategies that can help our campus tackle this important problem.  We are excited to tell you about a new resource that has been developed by the Maryland Collaborative. It’s a website specifically focused on helping parents to have conversations about alcohol and about high-risk situations that involve alcohol.

The website is www.collegeparentsmatter.org. We hope you will find it useful and use the contact page to sign up for updates and provide feedback on what you would like to see on the website in the future.
