Adelphi, MD (November 10, 2015) -- University System of Maryland (USM) Chancellor Robert L. Caret has appointed Patrick N. Hogan as the system's vice chancellor for government relations. Hogan, a former member of the Maryland House of Delegates, will join USM on November 30, 2015.

"Patrick Hogan brings a wealth of experience to this position," said Chancellor Caret. "He served in the Maryland General Assembly for eight years, earning a reputation for working effectively across party lines to get things done. I am confident that his deep knowledge of Maryland government and legislative processes will serve the University System of Maryland well in the years ahead. I am pleased to welcome him to my team."

"The Board of Regents joins Chancellor Caret in welcoming Patrick Hogan to the USM community," said James L. Shea, chair of the board. "He is respected for his pragmatism and strong work ethic. We look forward to working with him."

As vice chancellor for government relations, Hogan will be the chief adviser to Chancellor Caret and the USM Board of Regents on governmental relations policies and strategies, on both the state and federal levels. In addition, he will chair USM's State Relations Council, comprising government relations officers from the system's 12 institutions.

"I'm excited for this opportunity to work with my new USM colleagues, my former legislative colleagues, and the state's executive branch to help the university system thrive as it works to move our state forward," said Hogan.

For the past 10 months, Hogan has served as deputy legislative officer for Maryland's Office of the Governor. Prior to that position, Hogan was vice president of business development for the Hogan Companies, a diverse group of real estate services companies.

Hogan served in the Maryland House of Delegates from 2011-2015, and earlier from 2003-2007. Between his two legislative terms, he was director of development for the YMCA of Frederick County.

"As a member of the House, Patrick worked across the aisle to find solutions to solve problems across Maryland," said Speaker of the House Michael E. Busch. "He was a well-respected member of the House and will bring that same work ethic and temperament to the University System of Maryland."

"Patrick was an outstanding delegate," said Delegate Maggie McIntosh, chair of the Maryland House Appropriations Committee. "He has a wonderful commitment to government and to public service."

A resident of Frederick, MD, Hogan in 2002 earned his bachelor's degree in government and politics from the University of Maryland, College Park, the flagship of the 12-institution University System of Maryland.

Hogan will succeed Patrick J. (PJ) Hogan (no relation), who left the vice chancellor position September 30 to join Cornerstone Government Affairs.

"As a former legislator and a graduate of the University of Maryland, Patrick (N. Hogan) is a perfect fit for this position and I look forward to working with him in this new capacity," said Maryland Senate Minority Leader J.B. Jennings.
