Tess McRae ‘22 Appointed Co-Chair

USM Student Civic Leaders Committee

Tess McRae, Humanities Scholar 2022 grad has been appointed co-chair of the University System of Maryland (USM) Student Civic Leaders Committee (SCLC) for the spring 2022 semester. In her role as co-chair, McRae will help to plan and facilitate convenings of the committee and identify civic engagement and education priorities for USM. She has served on the committee as a representative for UMBC since it was established. The other co-chair is Delanie Blubaugh, a student at Frostburg State University. Dr. Nancy Shapiro, USM’s Assistant Vice Chancellor for Education and Outreach, and Dr. Joann Boughman, USM’s Senior Vice Chancellor for Academic and Student Affairs, convene the committee and support its work.

The SCLC was established in 2020 in response to the Board of Regents’ acknowledgement of the continuing importance of civic education and civic engagement to the mission of the University System of Maryland. Student leaders from USM institutions and USM System Office staff members comprise the SCLC’s membership. The SCLC supports civic engagement and education efforts within and between USM universities.

McRae serves as senior intern for civic design and engagement in the Center for Democracy and Civic Life.
