USM Regents Committee on Education Policy and Student Life Meets March 3

Adelphi, Md. (Feb. 27, 2015) -- The University System of Maryland (USM) Board of Regents Committee on Education Policy and Student Life at its next meeting will vote on three proposed degree programs and hear an update on the USM Center for Academic Innovation.

The meeting is scheduled to begin at 9:30 a.m. on Tuesday, March 3, on the seventh floor of the Albin O. Kuhn Library on the campus of the University of Maryland, Baltimore County (UMBC).

Two of the degree programs are at Frostburg State University: a B.S. in health science and a B.S. in secondary teacher education. The third proposed program is an M.S. in cybersecurity engineering technology at the University of Maryland Eastern Shore.

The Center for Academic Innovation was established in June 2013 to enhance and promote the USM's position as a national leader in higher education innovation. The update will discuss the center's success in using learning and technological breakthroughs to improve access, affordability, and outcomes in higher education.

The committee also will receive an overview featuring important undergraduate data, including SAT percentile distributions of first-time undergraduates and retention and graduation rates for those students. Background information and the full agenda are available here.
