USM Board of Regents Meets June 10

Meeting to Include Presentation of Chancellor's Annual Report, Vote on FY 2017 Operating Budget

Adelphi, Md. (June 8, 2016) -- The University System of Maryland Board of Regents at its next meeting will hear a presentation of the Chancellor's Annual Report and will vote on the proposed fiscal year 2017 operating budget.

The public meeting will begin at 8:30 a.m. on Friday, June 10 at the University of Maryland Center for Environmental Science (UMCES) Horn Point Laboratory, Cambridge, MD, in the George B. Todd Interactive Video Network Room. The address is 2020 Horns Point Road in Cambridge.

The board also will vote on two new academic programs: a M.S. in palliative care at the University of Maryland, Baltimore and a B.A. in public policy at the University of Maryland, College Park.

The regents will hear reports from the councils of university system presidents, faculty, staff and students and several information items, including an update on progress of financial aid recommendations first developed in 2014.

The board will vote at the end of its public agenda on whether to reconvene in closed session to discuss items that fall under the closing guidelines of the Open Meetings Act. These items include meetings with two presidents as part of their performance reviews; consideration of a request by an institution to rename a building after an individual; briefing on legislative audit matters that are ongoing and, therefore, confidential; discussion of investigative matters which may lead to criminal prosecution; proposed FY 18 Capital Budget submission; an administrative matter relating to an RFP for a study of presidential compensation; annual reviews of USM presidents, Chancellor and USM senior staff; approval of USM presidents' and Chancellor's compensation for FY2017; and a report from an assistant attorney general on the status of ongoing litigation.
