USM Board of Regents to Honor Exceptional Faculty; Also to Act on Proposed Academic Programs, Tuition Rates
Md. (April 14, 2010) - The University System of Maryland (USM) Board of
Regents at its next meeting will confer Regents Awards to 16 faculty members.
The public meeting will begin at 8:30 a.m. Friday, April 16, in Room 2100 of
the University of Maryland University College (UMUC) Inn and Conference Center.
The awards are the highest honor presented by the Board of Regents
to exemplary faculty members. Presented in four categories, the awards honor
excellence in teaching; scholarship, research or creative activities; public
service; and mentoring.
In other business, the regents will take action on proposed academic
programs at several USM institutions.
The board also will vote on tuition and mandatory fees for all
students, including a proposed 3 percent tuition increase for full-time in-state
undergraduates, and self-support charges such as room, board, and parking. Tuition
for full-time in-state undergraduates has remained frozen since fall 2005.
The regents also will receive reports from the councils of
university system presidents, faculty, staff, and students.
After the public meeting, the board will meet in executive session.
