Former Clark School Board of Visitors member Linda Gooden has joined the University System of Maryland Board of Regents.

Gooden is a vice president with Lockheed Martin Information Systems and Global Services and an officer of the Lockheed Martin Corporation. A champion for education in the STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) disciplines, she has served on executive boards at numerous USM institutions, including the University of Maryland, Baltimore County and the Clark School.

Gooden has been honored with membership in the Maryland Business Hall of Fame and selection as U.S. Black Engineer and IT Black Engineer of the Year. The University of Maryland University College awarded her an honorary doctor of public service degree in recognition for her service to the community and higher education.

A 17-member Board of Regents, including one full-time student, governs the University System of Maryland. Appointed by the governor, the regents oversee the system's academic, administrative, and financial operations; formulate policy; and appoint the USM chancellor and the presidents of the system's 13 institutions. With the exception of the student member, each regent is appointed for a term of five years and may not serve more than two consecutive terms. The student regent is appointed for a one-year term and may be reappointed. Regents serve on the board without compensation.

The University System of Maryland comprises 11 universities, two research institutions, two regional higher education centers and a system office. USM provides access to excellent higher education opportunities, performs groundbreaking research, offers vital services to communities and individuals and fuels economic and workforce development.
