USM Board of Regents Meeting for November 2 Moved to University of Maryland, Baltimore
Adelphi, Md. (Oct.
31, 2012) -- The location for the meeting of the University System of
Maryland (USM) Board of Regents on Friday, November 2 has been changed. The
meeting now will be held in the Board Room, 14th
floor of the Saratoga Building at the University of Maryland, Baltimore. The
building is located at 220 North Arch Street, Baltimore, MD. The public session
of the meeting is scheduled to begin at 8:30 a.m.
The board will vote on a
proposal to establish a USM Center on Academic Transformation and hear an
educational forum regarding USM strategies in fundraising and other advancement
(The meeting's original location was
the Chesapeake Biological Laboratory in Solomons, MD. To accommodate the needs
of attendees who have been impacted by Hurricane Sandy, the meeting was moved
to a more urban location in central Maryland.)
At its recent retreat, the Board of
Regents engaged in a thorough discussion about transformation of the academic
model, including course redesign and other innovative learning models. The
creation of a Center for Academic Transformation at USM would enable an
expansion of existing System-led efforts for collaboration among USM campuses
and enhance opportunities for funding of new initiatives.
The presentation regarding USM
advancement activities will be delivered by Regent Barry P. Gossett, chair of
the BOR Committee on Advancement, and USM Vice Chancellor for Advancement
Leonard R. Raley.
The board also will vote on a proposed
master of arts in language, literacy and culture at the University of Maryland,
Baltimore County (UMBC). The regents will hear reports from the councils of
university system presidents, faculty, staff and students. After the public
meeting, the board will meet in executive session.
