Adelphi, Md. (March 24, 2017) - The University System of Maryland (USM) Board of Regents Committee on Education Policy and Student Life at its next meeting will vote on a new academic program and hear an overview of undergraduate success in the USM.

The meeting will begin at 9:30 a.m. on Tuesday, March 28, on the seventh floor of the Albin O. Kuhn Library on the campus of the University of Maryland, Baltimore County (UMBC).

The academic program is a master of science in nursing at Frostburg State University, with two areas of concentration: family nurse practitioner and psychiatric & mental health nurse practitioner.
