USM Regents Committee on Finance Meets June 15

Adelphi, Md. (June 11, 2010) -- The University System of Maryland (USM) Board of Regents Committee on Finance at its next meeting will take action on the USM Fiscal Year 2012 Capital Budget Request and FY 2012-2016 Capital Improvement Program. The committee also will vote on a proposed revision to a board policy regarding family and medical leave.

The public meeting is scheduled to begin at approximately 10:45 a.m. Tuesday, June 15, in the Alumni Suite of the Physical Education Complex at Coppin State University, 2500 W. North Avenue, Baltimore, MD.

The finance committee's capital budget recommendations will be presented to the full board at its meeting scheduled for June 18. Last month, the committee held its annual capital budget workshop to review and discuss strategic goals and priorities for the system's capital improvement program. The presidents of the system's 12 institutions participated.

The vote regarding family and medical leave concerns the passage of the National Defense Authorization Act, which requires modification of USM Policy VII-7.50 Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) to include additional FMLA leave for staff employees with family members in the military.

The committee also will hear an informational review of USM capital improvement projects.
