Adelphi, Md. (Jan. 9, 2015) -- The Committee on Education Policy and Student Life of the University System of Maryland (USM) Board of Regents will meet in public session at 9 a.m. on Tuesday, January 13, in the Multi-Purpose Room of the Christopher Columbus Center, 701 E. Pratt Street, Baltimore. 

The committee will vote on three academic program proposals: a B.S. in adventure sports management at Frostburg State University; a B.A. in philosophy, society and applied ethics at the University of Baltimore; and an M.S. in cloud computing architecture at University of Maryland University College.

The committee will hear a five-year review of new academic programs and results of periodic reviews of academic programs. The committee will also receive a report on external funding and discuss issues surrounding representation at student conduct hearings.

The committee then will vote on whether to reconvene in closed session to discuss items that fall under closing guidelines of the Open Meetings Act. Those items are USM Regents' Faculty Award Committee recommendations and honorary degree nominations. The agenda is available here.
