Oct 7 @ 8:30 am – 9:30 am

Join the Greater Baltimore Committee in welcoming Darryll Pines as President of the University of Maryland College Park and Anthony Jenkins as President of Coppin State University. Learn more about their plans for the future and what’s next for these Maryland higher education institutions.

Darryll PinesDarryll J. Pines, President of University of Maryland, College Park

Darryll J. Pines serves as President of the University of Maryland and the Glenn L. Martin Professor of Aerospace Engineering. He was formerly the Nariman Farvardin Professor of Engineering and Dean of UMD’s A. James Clark School of Engineering, where he has been on the faculty since 1995. In 2019, he was elected to the National Academy of Engineering.

Pines has testified before Congress about the importance of K-12 STEM education for all students, and led an initiative to pilot a first-of-its-kind, nationwide, pre-college course on engineering principles and design. The program, Engineering For US All (E4USA), was made possible through a $4 million NSF grant.

Under Pines’ leadership, The Clark School established five interdisciplinary research centers and institutes: The Maryland Energy Innovation Institute, Robert E. Fischell Institute for Biomedical Devices, Maryland Transportation Institute, Quantum Technology Center (jointly with the Department of Physics) and Maryland Robotics Center.

Prior to his promotion to Dean, Pines led the Department of Aerospace Engineering, taking a leave of absence from the University of Maryland from 2003 to 2006 to serve as a program manager for the Tactical Technology Office and Defense Sciences Office at the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA). He also held positions at the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (LLNL), Chevron Corp. and Space Tethers. At LLNL, Pines worked on the Ballistic Missile Defense Organization’s Clementine spacecraft program, which discovered water near the south pole of the moon.

In recognition of his contributions to the field, Pines was named a fellow of the American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics, American Society of Mechanical Engineers and Institute of Physics.

He received a Bachelor of Science degree in mechanical engineering from the University of California, Berkeley. He earned M.S. and Ph.D. degrees in mechanical engineering from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.

Anthony L. Jenkins, President of Coppin State UniversityAnthony L. Jenkins, President of Coppin State University

Anthony L. Jenkins, Ph.D., became the 8th President of Coppin State University (CSU) on May 26, 2020. He is an established higher education leader and advocate committed to creating higher education opportunities for all students, especially culturally under-represented groups.

Jenkins came to CSU from West Virginia State University (WVSU), a historically black land-grant research university near Charleston, W.V., where he served as president from July 2016 until May 2020. Prior to WVSU, Jenkins was Vice President for Student Affairs and Enrollment Management at the University of Maryland Eastern Shore and was the Senior Associate Vice President for the University of Central Florida.

His career includes serving at Jackson State University, before joining Virginia Tech’s Housing and Residence Life, and later the Office of the Dean of Students. He remained at Virginia Tech until becoming the Assistant Dean of Students of Northeastern Illinois University. He later served as the Dean of Students at the University of North Carolina Wilmington; and was recruited to serve as the Dean of Students at the University of Houston-Clear Lake.

Jenkins is a proponent for education and public policy issues. He has fostered meaningful dialogue within
the national higher education community. His research, speeches and publications focus on crisis management, enrollment and retention, diversity, African-American male initiatives, first generation college student success, state funding for higher education, mentoring, and high-risk college campus behavior such as alcohol consumption and sexual misconduct.

A United States Army veteran, Jenkins began his path to higher education as a first generation college graduate of Fayetteville State University. He earned a Master’s degree from North Carolina Central University and a Doctorate from Virginia Tech University.

GBC Newsmaker Speaker Series: Meet University of Maryland President Darryll Pines and Coppin State University President Anthony Jenkins @ Webinar via Zoom
Oct 7 @ 8:30 am – 9:30 am

Join the Greater Baltimore Committee in welcoming Darryll Pines as President of the University of Maryland College Park and Anthony Jenkins as President of Coppin State University. Learn more about their plans for the future and what’s next for these Maryland higher education institutions.

Darryll PinesDarryll J. Pines, President of University of Maryland, College Park

Darryll J. Pines serves as President of the University of Maryland and the Glenn L. Martin Professor of Aerospace Engineering. He was formerly the Nariman Farvardin Professor of Engineering and Dean of UMD’s A. James Clark School of Engineering, where he has been on the faculty since 1995. In 2019, he was elected to the National Academy of Engineering.

Pines has testified before Congress about the importance of K-12 STEM education for all students, and led an initiative to pilot a first-of-its-kind, nationwide, pre-college course on engineering principles and design. The program, Engineering For US All (E4USA), was made possible through a $4 million NSF grant.

Under Pines’ leadership, The Clark School established five interdisciplinary research centers and institutes: The Maryland Energy Innovation Institute, Robert E. Fischell Institute for Biomedical Devices, Maryland Transportation Institute, Quantum Technology Center (jointly with the Department of Physics) and Maryland Robotics Center.

Prior to his promotion to Dean, Pines led the Department of Aerospace Engineering, taking a leave of absence from the University of Maryland from 2003 to 2006 to serve as a program manager for the Tactical Technology Office and Defense Sciences Office at the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA). He also held positions at the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (LLNL), Chevron Corp. and Space Tethers. At LLNL, Pines worked on the Ballistic Missile Defense Organization’s Clementine spacecraft program, which discovered water near the south pole of the moon.

In recognition of his contributions to the field, Pines was named a fellow of the American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics, American Society of Mechanical Engineers and Institute of Physics.

He received a Bachelor of Science degree in mechanical engineering from the University of California, Berkeley. He earned M.S. and Ph.D. degrees in mechanical engineering from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.

Anthony L. Jenkins, President of Coppin State UniversityAnthony L. Jenkins, President of Coppin State University

Anthony L. Jenkins, Ph.D., became the 8th President of Coppin State University (CSU) on May 26, 2020. He is an established higher education leader and advocate committed to creating higher education opportunities for all students, especially culturally under-represented groups.

Jenkins came to CSU from West Virginia State University (WVSU), a historically black land-grant research university near Charleston, W.V., where he served as president from July 2016 until May 2020. Prior to WVSU, Jenkins was Vice President for Student Affairs and Enrollment Management at the University of Maryland Eastern Shore and was the Senior Associate Vice President for the University of Central Florida.

His career includes serving at Jackson State University, before joining Virginia Tech’s Housing and Residence Life, and later the Office of the Dean of Students. He remained at Virginia Tech until becoming the Assistant Dean of Students of Northeastern Illinois University. He later served as the Dean of Students at the University of North Carolina Wilmington; and was recruited to serve as the Dean of Students at the University of Houston-Clear Lake.

Jenkins is a proponent for education and public policy issues. He has fostered meaningful dialogue within
the national higher education community. His research, speeches and publications focus on crisis management, enrollment and retention, diversity, African-American male initiatives, first generation college student success, state funding for higher education, mentoring, and high-risk college campus behavior such as alcohol consumption and sexual misconduct.

A United States Army veteran, Jenkins began his path to higher education as a first generation college graduate of Fayetteville State University. He earned a Master’s degree from North Carolina Central University and a Doctorate from Virginia Tech University.

  • October 8, 2020
    8:30 am - 9:30 am

Chris McDonellMost everyone deals with the internal question: Why is it that I have so little time to do all of the things that I want to do?

We are all aware that time is a finite, non-renewable resource which must be carefully managed. Yet, having the personal conviction to take ownership of our own time can be extremely difficult. Often, people devalue their own time while prioritizing everyone else’s.  Many individuals in the workplace develop “head trash” around time management — throwing their hands up in the air, claiming there is no use in being proactive.

This workshop is designed to energize attendees to focus more intently on their individual time management behaviors in order to get more out of each day. We will ask all attendees to come prepared to take a closer look at how they have spent their time in recent weeks and learn from those experiences.

Chris McDonell is President of McDonell Consulting Group, a licensed Sandler Training center based in Baltimore. McDonell, who has more than 25 years of experience in sales and executive leadership, has worked throughout the U.S. for leading financial institutions, including Morgan Stanley, Citigroup and The Associates. McDonell has been with Sandler Training since 2008 and has formed long-term partnerships with small and large companies.

He also held positions at the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (LLNL), Chevron Corp. and Space Tethers. At LLNL, Pines worked on the Ballistic Missile Defense Organization’s Clementine spacecraft program, which discovered water near the south pole of the moon.
