Like many of the businesses in College Park, organizations such as the Office of Community Engagement (OCE) have maintained operations virtually. Since the University of Maryland closed, OCE has continued highlighting ways for students and College Park locals to help support the greater community on its social media and monthly e-newsletters.
For the past couple of months, OCE has primarily focused on its Count Me In campaign, which promotes the importance of completing the 2020 census. This campaign consists of a series of live streams on Instagram, as well as a Count Me In Video Challenge, which is open until this Friday, May 15th. If you haven’t already completed the census, this article outlines why the census is needed, and how it works.
