Letter from President Darryll J. Pines

By Darryll J. Pines

Dear Colleagues,

The University of Maryland is now inviting applications and nominations for the position of Senior Vice President and Provost to lead our academic enterprise. We will be pursuing a diverse pool of candidates drawn exclusively from within the University System of Maryland.

We are searching for a leader with a deep commitment to student success and to creating an equitable and welcoming environment for students, staff, and faculty. As we continue to implement new and innovative ways to teach and learn, it is important for our university to have a chief academic officer who will build on our strong history to effect positive, transformative change. Our next Provost will be charged with advancing the university and its position in the national academic landscape.

Thank you in advance for applications and nominations for this vitally important role.
