Mary Baldwin University has announced that Darren Jones will become its first associate vice president of student engagement, effective the beginning of June.
“I am truly honored to have been appointed to this inaugural role at Mary Baldwin,” he said. “When I first came to campus to interview, I immediately sensed that there is a level of interconnectedness among campus stakeholders and a strong devotion to the success of the students and the institution.”
Jones began his career as program coordinator for Greek Life at George Washington University, where he assisted with the organization and execution of Greek Life programming and designed major event programming for the Multicultural Greek Council. From there, he moved on to successful roles within student engagement at Purdue University, Fairleigh Dickinson University, Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, and Morehouse College. Jones comes to Mary Baldwin from Bucknell University, where he served as associate dean of students for living, learning, and leadership.
