The Dr. Carol Espy-Wilson STEM Scholarship Initiative in honor of Dr. Roderic I. Pettigrew ‘72

STEM Success

In the most recent 10 years [2004-2013) of data available from the U.S. Department of Education’s National Center for Education Statistics: 

  • Morehouse was the #1 producer of black male baccalaureates in biological sciences, physics, as well as mathematics and statistics
  • Morehouse was the #2 producer of black male baccalaureates in chemistry
  • Morehouse was the #6 bachelor’s degree institution for black males who earn doctorate degrees in engineering [2003-2012)

“Ensuring innovative surges of strength in science, technology, engineering, arts, mathematics and entrepreneurism” is a major part of President John Silvanus Wilson’s commitment to pave a pathway to preeminence and to make certain that Morehouse realizes “the world of our dreams.”
