University center still without project director

The University System of Maryland has not yet selected a new project director for the system's Hagerstown Center, system spokesman Chris Hart said Wednesday.

Robert Sweeney, who had been project director, resigned in June. He is now working as a consultant on Allegheny Energy's Friendship Technology Park.

There is no set plan on how or when a replacement will be selected, Hart said. It could be a year before someone is selected, he said.

The present plans are also just speculation at this point, he said.

The position vacated by Sweeney will be a permanent one and whoever gets that job may be the center's first campus director after it opens, Hart said.

The campus is scheduled to open in fall 2003.

In the interim, various university system officials will handle Sweeney's duties, Hart said. College Park employees will help out, he said.

Sweeney, a Boonsboro resident, had three main responsibilities: Administration, being a liaison and program management, Hart said.

"Bob was handling all three at once. And he did an outstanding job," Hart said. " We wish him all the best."

Hart said he did not know if Sweeney's replacement would be a Washington County resident.
