Morgan State President Dr. David Wilson to Speak at the Wednesday, September 7th Roland Park Civic League Meeting at 7PM

Please join the Civic League in welcoming Dr. Wilson as part of our “In the Community” monthly highlights.  Dr. Wilson, who has more than 30 years of experience in higher education, will be joining us at the beginning of the Civic League’s meeting to discuss recent developments at Morgan State and his continuing passion and commitment to Maryland’s preeminent public urban research university.  Morgan State recently established a new School of Global Journalism and Communication and is in the process of completing over $1 billion construction projects on campus. During Dr. Wilson’s tenure, Morgan has elevated its research classification to a R2, which is reserved for doctoral universities with high research activity, improved Morgan’s student retention rate, and completed a fundraising anniversary campaign, the largest in Morgan’s history.  Morgan currently offers 140 academic programs providing degrees from baccalaureate to doctorate and is among the nation’s most diverse Historically Black Colleges and Universities and the largest one in Maryland.   We look forward to hearing from Dr. Wilson about his passion for education and collaboration with communities and higher learning institutions.

Meeting will be held at the Roland Park Presbyterian Church, 4801 Roland Avenue.  Dr. Wilson will speak at 7PM.  This is an in-person meeting with Zoom link available. Monthly Civic League meeting will follow.
