Maryland governor Martin O'Malley replaces the majority of board members at Baltimore City Community College

Concerned about the academic achievement of students at Baltimore City Community College, Gov. Martin O'Malley has overhauled its board of trustees, replacing the majority of its members.

"The governor has been monitoring the overall situation at BCCC, particularly student achievement and the relationships between faculty, students and administration," said Raquel Guillory, a spokeswoman for the governor. "The governor has been disappointed with the lack of progress, and he believes now is the time to infuse the board with new leadership."

The community college has faced a series of challenges in the past year, including being placed on probation by the Middle States Commission on Higher Learning, which awards accreditation to higher-education institutions. In addition, state legislators held back funding and scrutinized its programs this past winter, and last November the faculty gave the president a vote of no confidence.

The five new appointees all have strong backgrounds in education or in "relationship building," Guillory said. The new members will replace members whose terms had expired or were set to expire soon, she said. The nine-member board had two vacancies.
