Darryll Pines Named University of Maryland President

The University System of Maryland Board of Regents has named Darryll Pines as the University of Maryland’s next president.

Pines, who has served as a dean and the Nariman Farvardin Professor of Aerospace Engineering at the Clark School since January 2009, first arrived at the university in 1995 where he was an assistant professor. He later served as chair of the Department of Aerospace engineering from 2006 to 2009.

He officially begins his new post at College Park in July.

“I’ve known him as an outstanding teacher, a dedicated mentor, a brilliant researcher, and an extraordinary leader,” said University System of Maryland chancellor Jay Perman. “It’s fitting — and gratifying — that UMD will be led by a member of its own family, by someone who knows so well its people and programs, its considerable strengths and enormous potential.”

Pines succeeds Wallace Loh, who came aboard in 2010 but announced in 2018 he would step aside amid a scandal involving the football team and the death of 19-year-old player Jordan McNair.
