USM 1988-2008: Exhibit Celebrates University System's First 20 Years

ANNAPOLIS, Md. (January 25, 2008) - A new exhibit in the second floor gallery of the Miller Senate Office Building celebrates the 20th anniversary of the founding of the University of Maryland (USM). The twelve-panel exhibit traces the system's origins from the founding of the first public colleges in Maryland during the early 1800s to today's educational and research powerhouses that are transforming the lives of students, driving the state's knowledge economy, and addressing critical workforce needs.

Individual panels highlight USM's significant historical mileposts, student achievement, faculty excellence, public service, leading-edge research, and initiatives to increase access and affordability in education and accountability to the citizens of Maryland.

The free exhibit is open to the public daily, Monday-Friday, from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., in the second floor gallery of the Miller Senate Office Building, 11 Bladen Street, Annapolis, MD.
