2021 President's Letter
“Without struggle there can be no forward progress!” — Frederick Douglass

President’s Letter

Alumni and Friends,

I welcome you to peruse this eye-catching portrait of change and transformation: the new Morgan Magazine! 

The world has changed tremendously over the past 28 months of pandemic and social-political-economic dislocation. This edition of our completely recast flagship publication celebrates the historic financial investment of the past two years that has placed Morgan State University — Maryland’s largest Historically Black College or University and the state’s Preeminent Public Urban Research University — in a prime position to shape the transformation happening around the globe today, all the while furthering our ascent to R1 “very high research” status. But our unprecedented fundraising success, and Maryland’s game-changing legal settlement with the state’s HBCUs, are only part of the story. The pages that follow also document how Morgan, and Morgan alumni, are already engaged in the vital work of change, in convergent channels such as artificial intelligence, community health, higher education, business, communications, politics, government, and diversity, equity and inclusion.

The die is cast: Morgan State University will continue to grow the future and lead the world in the coming decades and beyond. I thank you for making that possible with your continuing dedication to Morgan’s educational mission, and I hope to receive your feedback soon about this transformation of Morgan Magazine.
