Take the Plunge!
Students, faculty and staff at UMD's Labovitz School of Business & Economics and across the entire UMD campus have also been issued a personal invitation to "Take the Plunge" by Dean Kjell R. Knudsen.
"In the Labovitz School, we have a long history of outreach and engaging students and staff in community causes," says Dean Knudsen, who has pledged to take the plunge himself. "More specifically, Richard Brown, a newly named Senior Fellow at the Labovitz School, is on the board of Special Olympics Minnesota. When I proposed to our administrative committee that we partner with Special Olympics through Richard, it was unanimous. It's a great thing to do, and I hope we can get lots of people to take the Plunge."
