Patrick Hogan was appointed as the vice chancellor for government relations by Chancellor Emeritus Robert L. Caret in 2015.
As vice chancellor for government relations, Hogan serves as chief adviser to the USM chancellor and the USM Board of Regents on governmental relations policies and strategies, on both the state and federal levels. In addition, he chairs the USM's State Relations Council, comprising government relations officers from the system's 12 institutions.

Between his two legislative terms, he was director of development for the YMCA of Frederick County.
"As a member of the House, Patrick worked across the aisle to find solutions to solve problems across Maryland," said former Speaker of the House Michael E. Busch. "He was a well-respected member of the House and will bring that same work ethic and temperament to the University System of Maryland."
"Patrick was an outstanding delegate," said Delegate Maggie McIntosh, chair of the Maryland House Appropriations Committee. "He has a wonderful commitment to government and to public service."
