Regents' Finance Committee to Meet January 25 at College Park

The University System of Maryland (USM) Board of Regents' Committee on Finance will meet in public session on Thursday, January 25 at approximately 10 a.m. in Critique Hall in the Plant Sciences Building at the University of Maryland, College Park.

The Committee will consider several agenda items, including:

  • Update by Joseph F. Vivona, USM vice chancellor for administration and finance, on the governor's budget as well as proposed collective bargaining legislation.
  • Establishment of new policies and procedures for real estate transactions, consistent with Senate Bill 682. The new rules strike a balance between institutional self-management and the Regents' responsibility for System governance.
  • Installation of fire protection systems in eight residence halls and four Greek houses at the University of Maryland, College Park.
  • Construction of a fourth residence hall at the Capstone South Campus Student Housing Project at the University of Maryland, College Park.
  • Enhancement requests from the USM's historically black institutions, in keeping with the partnership agreement between the State of Maryland and the U.S. Department of Education's Office of Civil Rights.

Full agenda and background information will be available at the meeting. Sign language interpreters and/or other appropriate accommodations for eligible individuals with disabilities will be provided upon request. Please call 301/445-2756 (voice) or 301/314-7683 (TTY/ITT) to make special arrangements.
