John L. Young, M.D., Resigns from University System of Maryland Board of Regents

Adelphi, Md. (Feb. 25, 2013) -- John L. Young, M.D., has resigned from the University System of Maryland (USM) Board of Regents, citing the need to devote more time to other activities. His resignation was effective February 21, 2013.

"It has been a tremendous experience and opportunity to work with the Board of Regents and the USM Office," said Young. "I wish the university system continued success in the future." 

A Montgomery County resident, Young began his term on the board in July 2009. He served on the board's Committee on Education Policy and Student Life and Committee on Economic Development and Technology Commercialization. He also was a member of the board's Intercollegiate Athletics Workgroup.

"We are very grateful to John for his contributions to the board and the University System of Maryland," said Board Chairman James L. Shea. "We will certainly miss him."

"We will miss John's presence," said USM Chancellor William E. Kirwan. "But given his dedication and commitment to advance the university system and its role in advancing the state, we know that he will continue to be a strong USM advocate." 

The Board of Regents is the governing body of the University System of Maryland, which comprises 12 institutions and two regional centers. The board's 17 volunteer members are appointed by the governor. Governor Martin O'Malley will appoint a new member to the seat vacated by Young.
