USM Student Council

The University System of Maryland Student Council is one of four councils established during the restructuring of higher education in Maryland in 1988 to provide advice to the Chancellor and the Board of Regents. Other groups with standing advisory councils are the faculty, the presidents of the constituent institutions, and the staff. Chairs of these advisory councils attend meetings of the Chancellor's Council and provide regular reports to the Board of Regents at meetings of the full Board.

The USMSC helps ensure that the System leadership is aware of students' perspectives and responsive to students' concerns and issues. Each degree-granting institution in the USM has two representatives to the Council. The Council meets monthly throughout the school year; its meetings rotate among System campuses.

Among the specific responsibilities of the USMSC is the recommendation to the Chancellor each year, for transmittal to the Governor, of a group of nominees for the position of USM Student Regent.

The Council has, in the past, provided input on issues ranging from tuition policy to SAT score reporting and academic advising. The Council receives staff assistance through an advisor/liaison to the Chancellor from the Office of Academic Affairs at the USM Office.
