Adelphi, MD (September 9, 2013) -The University System of Maryland (USM) is 25 years old. And we invite you to participate in the celebration.
Throughout the 2013-14 academic year, we are observing this milestone with a look at the positive impact that USM has had-and continues to have-on the quality of life in Maryland and beyond. We’ve created a micro site that includes a timeline, a link to the story of how the system came to be, and some interesting facts about the system’s impact.
We’ve also transformed the USM Facebook page into the official 25th-anniversary party site. Be sure to LIKE the University System of Maryland on Facebook for regular updates and your chance to win prizes monthly.
There’s history to learn, information to share, an array of prizes to win, and enough pride to go around. Above all, there’s thanks to all who make it possible for the University System of Maryland to serve students and other individuals, communities, and the many organizations comprising the state’s public and private sectors with innovation, commitment, and excellence.
We offer special thanks to the sponsors whose donations have made this celebration possible. They are: Barry Gossett, vice chair of the University System of Maryland Board of Regents; CareFirst BlueCross BlueShield; Delmarva Power; MICROS Systems, Inc.; PNC Foundation; The Classic Catering People; The Whiting-Turner Contracting Company; and the University System of Maryland Foundation.
