Darryll Pines: The First Black to be Appointed President of Top US University in School’s 164-year History

After 164 years since the University of Maryland was established, Darryll Pines, has made history as the first African-American to be appointed president of the university.

The University of Maryland’s Board of Regents named Darryll Pines president in the school’s 164-year history, WJLA reports.

Darryll Pines has worked as a staff at the University of Maryland for the last 25 years and once served as dean of the School of Engineering.

Until this appointment, Pine has been serving as the Dean of the Clark School of Engineering which has geared him for this new role.

The university previously had an African-American Chancellor who acted as president, but Pines will be the first official president on record for the school.

Speaking on his appointment, Pine said he is honoured to take on the leadership role at the university.

Pines will begin his duties as president at the University of Maryland starting this summer, July 1, 2020.

The mobile home has a front lounge, which functions as a sitting space, a kitchen, or more typically, a ”kitchenette”, 3 TV Sets, bedroom, and a mini lounge which makes it homely and as comfortable as possible.
