USM Regents Committee on Finance Meets October 9

Adelphi, Md. (Oct. 7, 2014) -- The University System of Maryland (USM) Board of Regents Committee on Finance will consider several action items at its next meeting on Thursday, October  9.

The meeting will begin at 10:00 a.m. in the President's Board Room, 14th floor of the Saratoga Office Building at the University of Maryland, Baltimore (UMB). The building is located at 220 North Arch Street in Baltimore, Md.

The committee first will vote publicly on whether to reconvene in closed session. In closed session, the committee would consider an item specifically exempted in the Open Meetings Act from public consideration. That item is the acquisition of real property in Princess Anne.

Action items before the committee include an amendment to the USM policy on student classification for admission and tuition purposes. Recent passage of federal legislation mandates that, for education programs approved for qualifying veterans, the public institution in which they enroll must charge tuition and fees at the same rate as state residents.

The committee also will vote on a funding authorization for the renovation of the fine arts building at the University of Maryland, Baltimore County (UMBC). The committee will hear a presentation on the facilities master plan for University of Maryland University College and a report on construction of academic facilities throughout the USM. The agenda and supporting materials can be found here.

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) for special arrangements.

Parking is available in the Saratoga Garage, also located at 220 North Arch Street in Baltimore. For driving directions to UMB and a campus map, click here.
