USM Board of Regents Committee to Meet September 15, Present Regents Staff Awards

Adelphi, Md. (Sept. 13, 2017) -- The University System of Maryland (USM) Board of Regents at its next meeting will honor the recipients of the Board of Regents staff awards. The board also will vote on a proposed board of visitors for Coppin State University and hear an information on fiscal year 2017 fundraising totals.

The meeting will begin at 9 a.m. on Friday, September 15 on the seventh floor of the Albin O. Kuhn Library on the campus of the University of Maryland, Baltimore County (UMBC). The address is 1000 Hilltop Circle, Baltimore, MD.

The meeting will begin with an educational forum, "The Diversity Pipeline," presented by Dr. Sonja Santelises, chief executive officer of Baltimore City Public Schools.

The staff awards recognize staff members who have made exceptional contributions to their organizations, students and the university community. Recipients will be honored by the board at an earlier private awards breakfast, and then acknowledged shortly after the start of the public session.

The final public session item is a vote on whether to reconvene in closed session to discuss items exempted from public consideration under the Open Meetings Act.  These items include various personnel matters (including presidential reviews), acquisition of real property, collective bargaining, and any item requiring consideration in closed session to comply with a specific statutory requirement. Background information and the full agenda with supporting materials and the closing statement are available here.
