USM Board of Regents to Hold Special Meeting January 30

Baltimore, Md. (Jan. 29, 2019) -- The University System of Maryland (USM) Board of Regents will hold a special meeting at 3 p.m. on Wednesday, January 30. The meeting will be held at the USM Baltimore Columbus Center, 701 E. Pratt St, Baltimore, MD, in the 1st floor conference room.

The board will discuss an overview assessment provided by the Association of Governing Boards (AGB). The board then will vote publicly on whether to reconvene in closed session to discuss items exempted from public consideration under the Open Meetings Act. Those items are the status of presidential searches at University of Maryland, College Park (UMCP) and Coppin State University (CSU).

(Due to forecasts for inclement weather, the USM will monitor conditions and will work to provide any update and potential changes by noon.)

Materials for board meetings when finalized are posted here.
