USM Regents Advancement Committee Meets May 8

Adelphi, Md. (May 6, 2013) -- The University System of Maryland (USM) Board of Regents Advancement Committee will meet at 11 a.m. on Wednesday, May 8. The meeting will be held in the Chancellor's Conference Room in the Elkins Building at the USM headquarters, 3300 Metzerott Road, Adelphi, MD.

The committee will hear several information items, including a fundraising report and an extended discussion regarding dashboard indicators as used by USM advancement leaders.

The USM Offices of Institutional Research and Advancement have worked with the vice presidents for advancement across the USM to develop a dashboard of fundraising activity to be presented to the Board of Regents on an annual basis. Each campus identified peers in advancement for comparative purposes. Dashboards are intended to measure critical areas such as overall giving, alumni participation, endowment building, and resources deployed to support fundraising.

At the conclusion of the public meeting, the committee will vote on whether to reconvene to executive session. Background materials and the agenda are available at
