A brief description of the vegan dining program:

Dining Services offers many vegetarian and vegan selections including a vegan station in The Diner, Seasons 12 Mongolian Grill at South Campus, and a large selection of vegetarian and vegan items in the newest dining hall, 251 North. UMD placed eighth for large schools in People for the Ethical Treatment of Animal’s (PETA’s) annual competition for the most Vegan Friendly Campus. The Allergy and Special Diets Advisory Board, sponsored by Dining Services, includes students, Maryland’s staff dietitian, student nutritionists, the director of Dining Services, and DS staff. The group meets regularly to discuss menu selections and new recipe ideas. Current dining room menus include many recipes that have passed student taste test.
