USM Regents Committee on Education Policy Meets November 19
Adelphi, Md. (Nov.
14, 2012) -- The University System of Maryland (USM) Board of Regents
Committee on Education Policy at its next meeting will vote on a proposed name
change for the committee and hear several information items, including a report
on the workload of USM faculty.
The meeting is scheduled to begin at 9:30 Monday, November
19, in the Hilda and Michael Bogomolny Room (5th floor) of the
Student Center at the University of Baltimore, 21 W. Mt. Royal Avenue,
During discussion at the committee's meeting last month of
its role, function, and annual agenda, it was suggested that a name change might
more appropriately reflect the committee's responsibilities regarding student life.
Inclusion of "student life" in the committee's title would put appropriate
focus on the committee's work regarding student perspectives and issues.
In addition to the information item USM faculty workload,
the committee will hear from USM chief academic officers regarding foreign
language instruction in the USM. Background
information and the full agenda are available at http://www.usmd.edu/regents/agendas/ed111912.php.
After the public session, the
committee will announce it is reconvening in closed, executive session.
