Higher Education in Maryland


The Maryland Higher Education Commission (MHEC) is charged with producing a statewide plan every four years that clearly outlines the priorities and major goals for the State’s postsecondary system. The State Plan for Postsecondary Education is the result of a collaborative planning process that involves MHEC Commissioners and staff members; leaders from colleges, universities, and private career schools, including faculty, staff, and students; colleagues from other state agencies; representatives from the business community; and other key stakeholders.
