I-1.00-COUNCIL OF UNIVERSITY SYSTEM PRESIDENTS
(Approved by the Board of Regents, July 27, 1988 amended December 12, 2008)
Section 12-201 of Education, Annotated Code of Maryland, calls for the Board of
Regents to establish a Council of University System Presidents that "shall serve in
an advisory capacity to the Chancellor" and "may from time to time make reports and
recommendations to the Board." Such a Council will provide a mechanism for the
consideration of matters of common concern to the institutions in the System in
particular or to higher education in general, and will provide a formal vehicle
for the expression of positions of the Presidents collectively on such concerns.
The Council is composed of the Presidents of thirteen constituent institutions of
the System. The Council shall elect its own Chairperson. The Council will normally
schedule its meetings in tandem with meetings of the Chancellor's Council. Meetings
of the Council of University System Presidents may be called by the Chairman or a
majority of the members. The Chancellor or the Chancellor's designee shall be
expected to be present at all meetings of the Council of University System
Presidents so that the Council may advise the Chancellor on matters of concern.
The Council of University System Presidents may address the Board, from time
to time, at regular meetings of the Board of Regents.
