Please join the iSchool as part of the University of Maryland and Bowie State University for a Moment of Reflection, today August 30, 2017 at 12:05pm, to honor the life of Second Lt. Richard Collins in solidarity.
Please refer to the following logistics sent out by the University this morning:
- The moment will begin with a single Chapel bell chime at 12:05 PM and conclude with a single Chapel bell chime at 12:06 PM.
- An all campus text message will be sent between 11:50 AM and 12:00 noon notifying the campus of the moment at 12:05 PM.
- All will honor the moment of silence in place wherever they are – in classrooms, offices, residence halls, and meeting rooms across campus.
- Several chaplains will gather at the labyrinth to lay a flower at 12:05 PM. All are welcome to the labyrinth.
- Loud speaker announcements will be made at 12:00 noon in large venues (e.g., ERC, Stamp Food Court, The Diner) announcing the moment of silence at 12:05.
- All campus food service and cash registers will suspend business for one minute.
- Buses and cars in motion will not stop. Buses at bus stops will stay idle for one minute. All bus drivers will ask passengers to observe the moment of silence.
