USM Regents Committee on Effectiveness and Efficiency Meets Nov. 14

Adelphi, Md. (Nov. 10, 2011) -- The University System of Maryland (USM) Board of Regents Committee on Effectiveness and Efficiency at its next meeting will vote on a proposed revision to USM "dashboard indicators" and a proposed policy on the role of the USM as a public corporation.

The public meeting will begin at 12:00 noon on Monday, November 14 in Room 210 of the Talon Center at Coppin State University, 2500 W. North Avenue, Baltimore, MD. The committee will immediately announce a motion to reconvene in closed session, before resuming its public meeting.

The USM dashboard indicators -- critical academic, admissions, budgetary and other leading indicators of USM initiatives -- give the board a "snapshot" view of the whole of USM operations, including operations of the individual USM institutions. The approval of the 2020 Strategic Plan requires a revision of current dashboards to align with the new plan.

The purpose of developing a policy on USM's role as a public corporation is to articulate a systematic plan for enhancing the USM's capacity, under statutory tools currently provided by the General Assembly, to help foster economic development in Maryland.
