UMPD Conducts Motor School Training On-Campus

We would like to apologize to our UMD community as the instructor motor school conducted one of their training rides earlier today on-campus. As a result, the manner in which this training ride was conducted may have disrupted the normal operations of our campus environment. Our motorcycle school will continue with their training; however it will be conducted off-campus.

We apologize for any disruption that this training may have caused.
