Sheldon H. Knorr, Commissioner for Higher Edu-
16 Francis Street
Annapolis 21401 Telephone: 269-2971
The State Board for Higher Education was cre-
ated by Chapter 538, Acts of 1976, to replace the
Maryland Council for Higher Education, which
originally was created by Chapter 41, Acts of 1963,
as the Advisory Council on Higher Education.
The State Board consists of eleven lay members
appointed by the Governor with the advice and
consent of the Senate. Members serve five-year
terms. Members are eligible for reappointment.
However, no person may serve more than two
full five-year terms. (Code Education Article,
sees. 12, 17, 24, 25).
The Board is assisted by a Segmental Advisory
Committee consisting of nine members appointed
by the Governor. Of these nine members, one
represents the University of Maryland Board of
Regents; one represents the Morgan State Univer-
sity Board of Regents; two represent the Board of
Trustees of the State Universities and Colleges;
two represent the State Board for Community
Colleges; two represent the private colleges and
universities in the State; and one represents the
postsecondary vocational-technical institutions in
Maryland. These members serve two-year terms.
The State Board appoints a Commissioner for
Higher Education who executes the policies
adopted by the Board, directs the Board's staff,
and serves as a member of the Governor's Execu-
tive Council. The Commissioner serves a four-
year term and is eligible for reappointment.
The Board carries forth its broad responsibility
for coordinating the overall growth and develop-

ment of postsecondary education through activi-
ties in the following functional areas:
The Board prepared a statewide master plan
for postsecondary education in Maryland,
which was adopted by the Board on July 6,
1978. The Board is required to update the plan
annually. Each year the Board reviews for con-
sistency with the overall plan the short-range
and long-range goals and objectives of the
State's various postsecondary education
institutions and agencies. The Board also
coordinates participation by the postsecondary
education community in the State's Executive
Planning Process. In accord with its broad
planning responsibilities, the Board serves as
the State Postsecondary Education Commission
under Title XII of the Higher Education Act
of 1965, as amended.
In support of its planning functions, the Board
collects, compiles, analyzes, and disseminates
data related to postsecondary education in the
State. It develops and implements management
tools and information systems to aid policy-
makers at the State and institutional levels. In
consultation with postsecondary education agen-
cies and institutions, the Board conducts studies
of educational needs in the State and the
resources available to meet them. In order to en-
courage the effective and equitable use of
resources for postsecondary education, the Board
sets guidelines for tuition and fees and for faculty
and administrative salaries. The Board also
makes recommendations for improving the coor-
dination and operation of student financial aid
programs in the state, as well as recommen-
dations about how State and Federal programs
of support for higher education can be meshed
for maximum benefit to the citizenry,
In consultation with the Department of Budget
and Fiscal Planning, the Board annually reviews
and makes recommendations upon operating bud-
get requests from the University of Maryland,
Morgan State University, the Board of Trustees
of the State Universities and Colleges, St. Mary's
College, the State Board for Community Colleges,
the State Scholarship Board, and the Higher Edu-
cation Loan Corporation. On the basis of this re-
view, a consolidated operating budget for higher
education is developed for presentation to the
Governor. In consultation with the Department
