Extension of Independence Day Weekend

A Message from President Darryll J. Pines

By Darryll J. Pines

Dear Terps,

As we enjoy the summer season, I am reminded of all that our community does to propel our university fearlessly forward.

On behalf of both myself and our leadership team, thank you for your commitment to pursuing excellence in all that we do and establishing an inclusive, multicultural campus.

In celebration of our nation’s birthday, this year we will designate July 5, 2024, an Administrative Leave day for all regular and contingent II faculty and staff. No summer session classes will be held. University Human Resources and the Division of Academic Affairs will be in touch with additional details.

We hope that you will enjoy this extension of the holiday weekend and use it to rest and connect with family and friends.
