Who are the Retriever Essential Partners?

Retriever Essentials is a group of concerned UMBC administrators, faculty, staff and students working together on the Retriever Essentials mission of providing bags of non-perishable food to students who don’t have enough to eat.  We also direct students to UMBC resources that are readily available to assist each of our students in succeeding in their academic careers.
