Celebrating a legacy of service, activism and achievement!

On Thursday, May 18, 2023, the College of Education Alumni of Color Celebration will recognize the many achievements and contributions made by our alumni of color. 

To mark this occasion, the College of Education is raising funds in support of the Elaine Johnson Coates '59 Scholarship Fund. This fund, created in 2021, honors the legacy of Elaine Johnson Coates, a College of Education alumna and the first Black undergraduate student to graduate from the University of Maryland, College Park in 1959.  The scholarship provides financial assistance to College of Education students who promote racial diversity through service, activism, and academics. 


By making a gift today, you can support the next generation of educators and academic leaders who are committed to equity, social justice and diversity and inclusion.
