Character Preeminence: Ensuring that African American Males Excel in a 21st-Century World Focused on STEAM

Purpose:
In pursuit of character preeminence and academic rigor, Morehouse College is taking an integrated approach to ensure students engage in curricular and co-curricular activities that promote and reinforce STEM education and research. This activity focus on strengthening outcomes in enrollment, retention, progression, and graduation rates of African American males in STEM disciplines. Morehouse remain number one producer of black male PhD’s in STEM, and we must grow and reinforce those efforts. 
 
 

 
Within the most recent year, the Makerspace hosted several STEAM workshops, which involved students and faculty completing projects that infused the "Arts" into STEM. In the Making African Instruments Lecture Series, expert musical instrument makers provided students with guidance and support as they made kalimbas and drums.
