Student Leadership Opportunities

There are many leadership development opportunities external to UMB. Each year, the University, via the University Student Government Association, selects students to serve in student leadership roles for a year's term. These include the UMB Student Regent Nominee position and the Maryland Higher Education Commission's Student Commissioner position. Students also are appointed to represent all UMB students on the University System of Maryland Student Council and the Maryland Higher Educaton Commission's Student Advisory Council. For more information about the MHEC Student Advisory Council or the MHEC Student Commissioner position, visit the MHEC website.
