Board of Regents
A 21-member Board of Regents, including two students, governs the University System of Maryland. Appointed by the governor,
president of the senate, and the speaker of the house, the regents oversee the system's academic, administrative, and financial operations; formulate policy;
and appoint the USM chancellor and the presidents of the system's 12 institutions. With the exception of the student members, each regent is appointed for a term of five years, and
may not serve more than two consecutive terms. Student regents are appointed for a two-year term, and may be reappointed.
Regents serve on the board without compensation.
