Jay Perman Named Next USM Chancellor

Congratulations to UMB President Jay Perman, named the fifth chancellor of the University System of Maryland. In a letter to the UMB community, Perman said he took the job to ensure that every person who wants a high-quality college education can access it.

Perman sat down with WBAL and The Baltimore Sun to share his priorities. Read the touching endorsement from UMBC President Freeman Hrabowski, who served on the selection committee. An interim leader for UMB will be named soon.
