Linebaugh Appointed to Third Year as Interim MAPP Dean

By Maryland Today Staff

Don Linebaugh, interim dean of the School of Architecture, Planning and Preservation, will continue to serve in that post for a third year, Senior Vice President and Provost Mary Ann Rankin announced.

“I could not be more pleased or grateful for his service,” she said. “This interval of Don’s outstanding leadership has given us a chance to stabilize and grow programs and establish priorities such that a search for a permanent dean will now have an excellent chance of yielding great candidates from which to recruit our next leader.

Linebaugh previously led the Historic Preservation Program and was associate dean for faculty affairs and research. Before joining the Maryland faculty in 2004, he served seven years as director of the Program for Archaeological Research and associate professor of anthropology at the University of Kentucky and nine years as co-director of the Center for Archaeological Research and adjunct assistant professor of anthropology at the College of William and Mary.

“I am very happy to continue serving the school for another year,” Linebaugh said. “I’d like to thank Provost Rankin for giving me this opportunity to continue growing the school and to thank the faculty, staff and students for their support as we expand our interdisciplinary offerings in built environment education and research.”
