The Presidentís Commission on Ethnic Minority Issues (PCEMI) was established in 1973 to address the concerns of ethnic minority groups on the UMCP campus. As an advocate for the ethnic minority community, PCEMI has endeavored to ensure that barriers to equal access are identified and addressed, and that ethnic minorities are represented in all aspects of life and study throughout the UMCP campus.

The Presidentís Commission on Ethnic Minority Issues advises the President on issues of concern to minority students, faculty and staff. It serves as an advocate for the ethnic minority community to help create an environment that is supportive and provides a fair opportunity for the enrollment and graduation of ethnic minority students, and for the employment and upward mobility of ethnic minority faculty and staff. The Commission investigates the needs and concerns of ethnic minorities, reviews existing campus policies that may affect these individuals, and make recommendations for change or improvement.
