USM Board of Regents Committee on Education Policy and Student Life Meets March 11

Adelphi, Md. (March 7, 2014) -- The University System of Maryland (USM) Board of Regents Committee on Education Policy and Student Life at its next meeting will vote on several academic program proposals and hear a report on retention and graduation rates of full-time, degree-seeking undergraduate students.

The committee will meet at 9:30 a.m. on Tuesday, March 11 in the Chesapeake Ballroom, Salon C of the University of Maryland University College (UMUC) Inn and Conference Center, 3501 University Blvd. East, Adelphi, MD.

The academic programs under consideration are a M.S. in nursing at Frostburg State University and several graduate degree programs at the University of Maryland, College Park, including a Ph.D. in Teaching and Learning, Policy and Leadership.

The report on retention and graduation rates measures the "traditional student" classified as first-time, full-time degree-seeking undergraduates. The report measures the six-year graduation rate for the 2007 cohort. The committee also will hear reports on the SAT percentile distribution of first-time undergraduates, transfer patterns of USM students, and USM enrollment projections for 2014-2023.
