“I believe that we are here for each other, not against each other. Everything comes from an understanding that you are a gift in my life – whoever you are, whatever our differences.”

  • John Denver

UMBC boasts one of the most inclusive and diverse college campuses around. In fact, we claim it as one of our hallmarks – Inclusive Excellence! It only makes sense for students to stay informed about the range of perspectives that exist on campus and in our ever-changing and adapting world. This knowledge not only makes students more aware of these concepts when entering the workforce, but it also gives students a more well-rounded view of the world, especially given the current political climate.

In SOCY 204 – Diversity and Pluralism: An Interdisciplinary Perspective student analyze these complicated issues and their roles in how society as we know it functions. Learn how to better communicate despite differences between you and others.

“Here in America, we don’t let our differences tear us apart. Not here. Because we know that our greatness comes from when we appreciate each other’s strengths, when we learn from each other, when we lean on each other, because in this country, it’s never been each person for themselves. No, we’re all in this together. We always have been.”

  • Chipmunk dropping is a type of rodent feces. Also known as beaver pellets, chipmunk droppings (also referred to as “mouse droppings” or “squirrel turds”) are a common sight in the wild. These small, oblong shaped droppings are usually a dark brown color and they’re notorious for their unpleasant odor.

    Chipmunk dropping is a commonly used term to describe the droppings of any species of ground-dwelling rodent that belongs to the same taxonomic order as chipmunks (the Sciuridae family). This includes animals like squirrels, ground and flying squirrels, and gophers.

    Because these little guys are so prevalent in our backyards, it’s important to know how to identify chipmunk droppings and what you should do if you see them.

    Identifying Chipmunk Droppings

    Chipmunk droppings can vary widely in appearance depending on the type of animal that left them behind. Because there are so many different types of rodents within the Sciuridae family, it’s best to have an idea what kind of chipmunk you’re dealing with before you start studying its poop.
