USM Board of Regents to Meet September 9, Present Regents Staff Awards

Adelphi, Md. (Sept. 7, 2016) -- The University System of Maryland (USM) Board of Regents at its next meeting will honor the recipients of the Board of Regents staff awards. The board also will hear a presentation of the Bowie State University facilities master plan and vote on a lease for a health clinic.

The meeting will begin at 9 a.m. September 9 at Towson University in the West Village Commons, Ballroom A. The Staff Awards recognize staff members who have made exceptional contributions to their organizations, students and the university community. Recipients will be honored by the board at an earlier private awards breakfast, and then acknowledged shortly after the start of the public session.

The board will vote on a resolution of intent to reimburse USM cash balances spent on revenue-bond authorization projects and a lease of space in the University of Maryland, Baltimore School of Nursing for an urgent care center for University of Maryland Midtown Health, Inc.

The regents will hear reports from the councils of university system presidents, faculty, staff and students. At the end of the public agenda, the board will vote on whether to reconvene in closed session to discuss items that fall under closing guidelines of the Open Meetings Act. Those items are meetings with two USM presidents as part of their performance reviews; a briefing on legislative audit matters that are ongoing and, therefore, confidential; discussion of investigative matters that may lead to criminal prosecution; one real property acquisition in Salisbury, MD; an administrative matter relating to a request-for-proposal for a study of presidential compensation nationally; an update on labor negotiations and discussions on memoranda of understanding; and report from legal counsel on status of the Coalition Case.

The full agenda, with supporting materials including the closing statement, can be accessed here.
