In the search for the next leader of the University System of Maryland, stakeholders are looking at a range of candidates, possibly a household name, a well-known CEO, a top government official - someone with star power. Someone like Freeman A. Hrabowski III, president of University of Maryland, Baltimore County, who has been profiled on "60 Minutes" and named among Time magazine's "Most Influential People in the World. " University officials approached Hrabowski early in the search, according to sources familiar with the process, though Hrabowski insists he is not interested in the job. As the search continues, a 10-member committee charged with finding the next chancellor is developing a list of candidates for review by the Board of Regents, which will make the final selection.

University of Maryland Baltimore County President Freeman A. Hrabowski III says he is not interested in becoming chancellor of the University System of Maryland. That is a shame. He is extraordinarily qualified for the job, and if he could do for the entire system what he has done for UMBC, Maryland would benefit enormously. He has spearheaded innovative new approaches to teaching and learning, particularly in math and the sciences, and he has fostered the kind of linkages between students and employers that Maryland needs to grow its innovation economy.

In a rebuff to Chancellor Donald N. Langenberg, the University of Maryland Board of Regents said yesterday it welcomed faculty discussion on agricultural research and education, and it directed the chancellor to consult the College Park campus and others on his plan to restructure the field.At a meeting in Salisbury, the vice chairman of the governing board, Roger Blunt, praised the chancellor for trying to solve problems connected with agricultural education.

HOW DOES Chancellor Glendening sound? It's got a certain academic cachet. And the way Maryland's governor is arranging things, the office of chancellor could have considerable power over the 13 University System of Maryland institutions, their 130,000 students and $3 billion budget. You see, come Jan. 15, 2003, Gov. Parris N. Glendening will need a new title as his term expires. It looks as if he's got a plan that could make him the next UM chancellor -- a job that pays $300,000 a year, plus a deluxe house and ample expense account.

At his introductory press conference in Towson last week, Daniel J. LaVista sounded all the right notes when he spoke of eliminating waste and consolidating services.Those will be his main tasks by necessity as he assumes the newly created position of chancellor of Baltimore County's three community colleges later this summer. Maryland's largest network of two-year schools has badly needed streamlining, particularly given that Baltimore County was the only U.S. jurisdiction whose community colleges were run by separate presidents and administrations.

As I look back over my 12 years as chancellor of the University System of Maryland (USM), one of the developments in which I take the most pride has been the USM's genuine partnership with state leaders in Annapolis. Now that the primary is over and the election looms, I encourage candidates for office across Maryland, especially those running for governor, to commit themselves to upholding this partnership. It has served our students, the state and the citizens exceptionally well.

May 13, 2014 Dear Colleagues: After much thought and reflection, I have decided that the time is right to step down from my position as chancellor of the University System of Maryland (USM).  I informed the USM Board of Regents of my decision last week.  Chairman Jim Shea and the board members requested that I remain as chancellor until they conduct a search and name a successor. This has been a very difficult decision for me because I value so much the opportunity to work on behalf of USM and its 12 institutions.

If we could get NSA hackers to go to work on the Obamacare website, health care for every American would be delivered before Christmas. At least, it seems as if that would be the case. The folks who brought us HealthCare.gov cannot seem to keep the site from freezing up and shunting people seeking insurance coverage to a virtual waiting room with no doors. Meanwhile, the cyberspies at the National Security Agency are apparently smart enough to break into the telephones and electronic communications of every head of state from Berlin to Rio. Why does one set of government techies seem as smart as Q, James Bond's gadgets guy, and another set seem as knuckle-headed as Dwight Schrute on "The Office?"

There was little mystery in the recruitment of Chancellor Barnard . The Glenelg Country School guard knew exactly where he wanted to go to college - Loyola - and the coaching staff there wanted him, too. But with the Greyhounds' move from the Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference to the Patriot League, Loyola's academic standards became stricter. So even though Barnard had easily reached the NCAA minimum qualifying benchmarks, he needed a higher standardized test score to be admitted to his top school.
