BALTIMORE — The University of Maryland has a new president.

Darryll Pines has been announced as the 34th President of the University. He's spent 25 years on the campus and is the dean of the University's A. James Clark School of Engineering.

He'll succeed current President Wallace Loh, who's led the university since 2010. Loh announced his plans to retire following the heat-related death of Maryland Sophomore football player Jordan McNair in June 2018.

Pines will take over the position on July 1.
