The Kennedy College of Sciences has launched two new scholarships to honor its former dean, Prof. Mark Hines, as well as Research Prof. Georges Grinstein, both of whom passed away this winter.
Hines, 67, who had taught previously at the University of New Hampshire and the University of Alaska, joined UML’s biology faculty in 2002 and went on to serve nearly a decade as chair of the Biological Sciences Department and four years as dean of the Kennedy College of Sciences.
“Mark provided crucial leadership in growing and strengthening the Kennedy College to gain the outstanding reputation it enjoys today,” says Chancellor Jacquie Moloney. “I am grateful not only for his dedication to scholarship and student success, but also for his kindness and generosity as a colleague.”
An emeritus professor of computer science, Grinstein, 71, taught at UML for 30 years and served as head of UML’s Bioinformatics Program and director of the Institute for Visualization and Perception Research.
Memorial scholarships have been established in both men’s names. The university will match donations to the Hines Scholarship Fund, which was kicked off by a $5,000 gift from Kennedy College alumnus John Kennedy ’70.
