With a generous gift from Jim and Marilyn Simons in 2016, I established the James King, Jr. Institute for Student and Faculty Engagement (JKJ Institute) here at Morehouse College which reflects much of the philosophy of my work with the EDGE Program. The JKJ Institute provides a broad range of opportunities at Morehouse for more focused engagement between faculty and students in science and mathematics. Currently the Institute funds the Visiting Professorship for Mathematics Teaching and two signature programs. One is a distinguished faculty fellowship program that identifies and recognizes science and mathematics faculty at Morehouse that are highly engaged in mentoring activities that support our students beyond the classroom. Second is Communicating TEAMs (Communicating by Thinking Effectively in and About Mathematics), a comprehensive series of leadership opportunities for Morehouse students from all majors to use mathematics to increase their communication skills.
