Opening Night Community Welcome: 'Divided Baltimore' Course

Town Hall

The University of Baltimore's new fall course, "Divided Baltimore: How Did We Get Here, Where Do We Go?," will kick off with a welcoming event for the entire community in the Town Hall in the H. Mebane Turner Learning Commons, 1415 Maryland Ave. UB students and faculty will join community activists, local leaders and concerned citizens in an overview of the semester-long course.
