The latest news and announcements from the University System of Maryland at Southern Maryland.
Progress continues on construction of the new Southern Maryland Autonomous Research and Technology (SMART) Building at the University System of Maryland at Southern Maryland (USMSM). This $86 million, 84,000-square foot academic and research facility, slated to open in Fall 2021, will be transformative for USMSM and for the broader Southern Maryland region.
University System of Maryland (USM) Chancellor Jay A. Perman has appointed Eileen Abel, PhD, as executive director of the University System of Maryland at Southern Maryland (USMSM).
Dear USMSM Community Members, The USMSM follows COVID-19 symptom monitoring protocols as outlined by its managing institution, University of Maryland College Park. Visitors entering the facility must complete a symptom monitoring form and submit to a temperature check. Faculty and students entering the facility for in-person instruction must follow the home institution protocol (spring 2021: UMCP), by using the app and symptom monitoring. Staff who are at the facility regularly should complete the daily check-in on the app.
Dear USMSM community, We are pleased to announce that USMSM has officially resumed limited activities at our facility. Our Return to Campus (RTC) Plan was approved by the University System of Maryland (USM) and reviewed by the St. Mary’s County Health Department which stated our plan was “well thought out, efficient and comprehensive.” Our plan in its entirety can be found on our website.
