Regents Education Policy Committee to Meet November 14 at Towson University

The University System of Maryland (USM) Board of Regents Committee on Education Policy will meet in regular public session on Tuesday, November 14 beginning at 9 a.m. in Rooms 314-316 of the University Union at Towson University in Baltimore.

The committee will consider several agenda items, including the following:

  • New and revised faculty policies pertaining to annual leave; appointment, rank and tenure; conduct, discipline assistance and education for substance abuse; as well as a set of procedures for appealing to the Board of Regents decisions to terminate tenured or tenure-track faculty members for cause. 

  • Proposal by the University of Maryland University College to create a set of ranks for non-tenure-track faculty focused on teaching and service without official research expectations. The new ranks would require a modification of USM policy pertaining to appointment, rank and tenure. 

  • Proposed USM policy on implementation and monitoring of recommendations of the Cult Task Force.

  • Program proposal for a bachelor of arts in African-American studies with a minor in African studies at the University of Maryland Eastern Shore.

Full agenda and background information will be available at the meeting. Sign language interpreters and/or other appropriate accommodations for eligible individuals with disabilities will be provided upon request. Please call 301/445-2756 (voice) or 301/314-7683 (TTY/ITT) to make special arrangements.
