The University System of Maryland encompasses 12 institutions including UMBC and two regional higher education centers. It employs more than 14,000 faculty members and owns more than 1,000 buildings. Its annual operating budget is more than $4.5 billion. There are more than 180,000undergraduate and graduate students enrolled at its various institutions. But only one of them gets to participate directly in the decisions of the Board of Regents, the system's governing body. Three times in the past ten years, that one student--the Student Regent--has come from UMBC.  Could you be next?
