USM Board of Regents Meets June 22

Adelphi, Md. (June 20, 2018) – The University System of Maryland (USM) Board of Regents at its next meeting will hear an educational forum regarding trends in campus mental health services and vote on several proposed academic programs.

The meeting will begin at 8:30 a.m. on Friday, June 22 in the Assembly Room of the Guerrieri Academic Commons on the campus of Salisbury University. The address is 1101 Camden Avenue, Salisbury, MD.

The educational forum includes a brief overview from USM Senior Vice Chancellor for Academic and Student Affairs Joann Boughman, followed by a detailed presentation encompassing campus and national perspectives. Two speakers – University of Maryland, Baltimore County (UMBC) Vice President for Student Affairs Nancy Young and Educational Advisory Board Senior Consultant Liz Brown – will lead that portion of the forum.

The new academic programs are a master of medical science at Frostburg State University; a M.S. degree in actuarial science and predictive analytics and a M.S. degree in transformational educational leadership, both at Towson University; and a doctor of business administration at University of Maryland University College.

The regents will also hear reports from the councils of university system presidents, faculty, staff and students. The board will offer brief resolutions of appreciation for three departing regents whose terms are expiring and two retiring presidents.

At the end of the public meeting, the board will vote on whether to meet in closed session. In closed session, the board would discuss issues specifically exempted in the Open Meetings Act from the requirement for public consideration. Those issues include the proposed fiscal year 2020 capital budget submission and potential adjustments to the submission; annual performance reviews of USM presidents and the chancellor; and other matters involving specific individuals. Background information and the agenda, including the full closing statement, are available here.
