The University System of Maryland (USM) consists of 13 institutions with distinct but complementary missions. The Board of Regents recognizes the distinct and complementary roles that the Regents, the Chancellor, the Presidents, other administrators, the faculty, the staff, and students have in governing the USM institutions. Moreover, the Board also recognizes that as higher education changes and evolves; implementation of the fundamental principles of shared governance set forth below must also continue to evolve. This policy affirms the Board's commitment to these fundamental principles, which shall guide the development of institution- specific shared governance practices consistent with this policy.
