USM Board of Regents Committee on Education Policy and Student Life Meets September 19

Adelphi, Md. (Sept. 15, 2017) -- The University System Board of Regents (BOR) Committee on Education Policy and Student Life at its next meeting will vote on several new academic degree programs, or adjustments to existing ones, hear an informational report on intercollegiate athletics, and vote on amendments to the System's Policy on Undergraduate Admissions.

The meeting will be held at 9:30 a.m. on Tuesday, September 19 in Ballroom B (4th Floor) of the West Village Commons at Towson University.

The new academic program is a proposed M.S. at Towson University in management and leadership studies. University of Maryland University College is proposing adjustments to specific areas of concentration, which would result in three freestanding academic programs: M.S. in acquisition and contract management; M.S. in cyber operations; and M.S. in strategic communications.

The BOR Policy on Intercollegiate Athletics (V-2.10) requires institutions to submit reports to inform the board of the academic and financial status of the athletic programs. The committee will hear an update on the academic performance of Division I student-athletes.

Amendments to the Policy on Undergraduate Admission (III-4.00) are being proposed to ensure the policy is aligned with Code of Maryland Annotated Regulations (COMAR) and the USM Policy on Affirmative Action and Equal Opportunity and to clarify admissions criteria for graduates of early and middle college programs.
