University System of Maryland Student Council
Officer Interest Form for
2024-2025 Academic Year

The University System of Maryland Student Council (USMSC) is one of four councils established during the restructuring of higher education in Maryland in 1988. The USMSC represents the over 166,000 students in the University System of Maryland's 12 institutions and 3 regional higher education centers.

Created to advise the Chancellor, the USMSC derives its authority from the Board of Regents. The primary function of the USMSC is to advise the Chancellor, Board of Regents, and elected officials on issues, matters, and policies having a direct bearing on students and student affairs in the USM.

The General Body of the Council consists of the presidents of the graduate and undergraduate student governments at each USM institution or regional center. The Council is led by an elected Executive Board (President; Vice President for Graduate Affairs; Vice President for Undergraduate Affairs) and an appointed Board of Directors (for communications and marketing; governmental relations; student affairs; and diversity, equity, and inclusion).
