One of Baltimore’s longest-serving and best-loved mayors will take over the top leadership spot at the University of Baltimore, university officials announced this morning.

It’s an interesting time for UB: According to the Washington Post, enrollment has grown by about a third over the past decade. The school has been acquiring more and more downtown real estate. And then there’s UB’s recent announcement that incoming freshmen will get a free semester if they graduate on time.

Schmoke has most recently been serving in various leadership capacities at Howard University. UB’s current president, Robert Bogomolny announced his retirement last year.
