It is with deep disappointment that I write this email informing you that the PEARL Day Event - scheduled to be held on October 1, 2021 - has been POSTPONED. The decision to postpone the event has been reached in consultation with the VP of Research and Economic Development. Dr. Willie E. May and is due to several factors. These factors include:
· The public health concerns associated with hosting a large in-person event given the recent Covid-19 spike due to the emergence of the Delta variant;
· The loss of our key federal partner, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, due to delayed federal government return-to-office plans related to the Covid-19 spike; and
· The inability to proceed with plans to host Baltimore City Public School students at PEARL Day due to the Covid-19 spike
I regret any inconvenience this postponement has caused. The future date has not yet been scheduled, but we are hoping to host the event sometime in 2022, likely in late Spring or early Summer. Please standby for additional information as the public health situation becomes more clear.
Stay well and stay safe,
Scott Knoche, PEARL Director

Food Resource Center (F.R.C.)
February 17, 2021
Greetings from the Food Resource Center,
Morgan friends and family, our Food Resource Center needs your help. Home Depot is investing $1 MILLION in 2021 to 30 HBCUs to update, upgrade, and uplift HBCU campuses.
The Food Resource Center at Morgan State University is vying for these funds to expand the support we provide to students who struggle with food insecurity, a need that has been amplified since COVID-19 quarantine closed our campus.
Please help us climb the leader board and secure this grant. There is unlimited voting until March 15th, so please #vote every day as often as you can throughout the day.
Please share the news with all your friends, family, members of the Morgan community, and strangers near and far!

Dear Morgan Community,
Following a decade marked by unprecedented growth and advancement, Morgan State University has officially begun the process of charting the course for its next decade of positive momentum. The ensuing strategic plan, upon its completion, will serve as a helpful roadmap charting Morgan’s path ahead for the next 10 years. By crafting a plan that is collaborative and comprehensive, it will provide us with a blueprint that enhances our vision and empowers us in our mission. To that end, we want to make certain that the input of our Morgan community is captured and duly noted prior to finalizing this critical plan.
Please take a moment to visit morgan.edu/strategicplan-draft to review the Draft Strategic Plan and share your thoughts. Your feedback will be invaluable as we look to move the University forward over the next 10 years, advancing in our pursuit to becoming the highest-level research university and continuing in service as an anchor institution for Baltimore City. Please note, your responses will be confidential. The Draft Strategic Plan will be open for comment until March 1, 2021, closing at 5 p.m. I appreciate your participation in this process and your collective commitment to Growing the Future and Leading the World!
