Terp Advocacy
The Alumni Association's Board of Governors met with elected officials at the Maryland State House in Annapolis on Feb. 28, prior to its spring board meeting. On behalf of the university's 377,000 alumni, board members conveyed the importance of operating and capital funding for UMD, as well as support for legislation that matches private funding with state funds for certain endowed faculty chairs.
