Al Gore Visits UMD

Hundreds of students, faculty, staff, and others gather to hear Former Vice President Al Gore speak in the Dekelboum Concert Hall at the Clarice Smith Performing Arts Center at the University of Maryland Tuesday, March 1. Gore came to the university to speak about the future of climate action.
Gore answers a student's question during the Q&A section of the event, hosted by the university's School of Public Policy. He is accompanied on stage by Robert Orr, the dean of the public policy school. 

The Dekelboum Concert Hall is packed as students wait for the chance to ask Gore questions related to climate action,
Gore takes a student question from the balcony. Event staff did not allow students seated in the balcony to move downstairs in order to participate in the Q&A session.
