GRIT-X is a series of presentations to celebrate the achievements of UMBC’s alumni and faculty. The program is structured as three distinct 30-minute sessions, where select groups of alumni and faculty will describe interesting and important aspects of UMBC’s impact in the areas of research, scholarship and creative achievement. You can join any individual GRIT-X session or stay for all three. The event is organized and sponsored by the Office of the Vice President for Research and the Office of Institutional Advancement.
