The University System of Maryland (USM) is a public corporation and charter school system comprising 13 Marylandmarker institutions of higher education. It is the 12th-largest university system in the United Statesmarker, with over 100,000 undergraduate, 30,000 graduate and 8,700 faculty. In 1988, it was created from the merger of the five University of Maryland institutions and the six members of the State University and College System of Maryland under the name University of Maryland System. In 1997, its name was changed to the University System of Maryland. In 1999, the Maryland General Assembly transformed the system to the charter model.

The merger creating the University of Maryland System was directed by Governor William Donald Schaefer and was overseen by University of Maryland President John S. Toll, who then became the system's first Chancellor. The current Chancellor is William Kirwan.

Relationships With Other Schools

When USM was originally formed in 1988, Maryland's other two state-funded (i.e., public) 4-year institutions (Baltimoremarker's Morgan State Universitymarker and Southern Maryland's St. Mary's College of Marylandmarker) opted out of the system and made separate funding arrangements with the state.

The Virginia-Maryland Regional College of Veterinary Medicine, although state-supported, remained outside the system because of its unique status as an institution jointly funded by Maryland and Virginiamarker. It is a constituent of both the College Park campus and Virginia Techmarker, with its main campus at Virginia Tech.

The USM institutions with the words "University of Maryland" in their names are not satellite campuses of the University of Maryland, College Parkmarker, and are not referred to as such.
