ANNAPOLIS – Salisbury University is a participant in the 19th Annual Session of the Maryland Student Legislature, a three-day meeting in Annapolis beginning April 25 that culminates year-long studies of state and local government processes.

An April 24 fundraising dinner featuring former Md. Gov. Harry Hughes as keynote speaker kicks off the annual session. Cost of the dinner, themed, “Tomorrow’s Leaders, Today,” is $50 per person.

The Maryland Student Legislature, or MSL, is an incorporated and educational non-profit organization that allows students at universities and colleges statewide to write, research and debate issues of local, state and national importance.

Students learn parliamentary procedure, the process of researching and drafting legislation and the organizational structure of leadership.

SU is among nine institutions participating. Others include the College of Notre Dame of Maryland, Towson University and University of Maryland campuses in Baltimore County and College Park.
