Barely two months into the tenure of the first Black president in the history of the University of Maryland-College Park, the state’s flagship university announced it will rename it’s women’s studies program after the historic figure who is synonymous with the underground railroad.  

The University of Maryland’s College of Arts and Humanities (ARHU) announced the Department of Women’s Studies will change its name to the Harriet Tubman Department of Women, Gender, and Sexuality Studies (WGSS) according to a statement released on Sept. 3.  It is the only department nationally that offers a Black women’s studies minor, which is a joint program within the African American Studies Department.
