Listen to the Podcast

David Thomas, president of Morehouse College, joins FutureU hosts Jeff Selingo and Michael B. Horne to discuss the challenges of building on the legacy of a storied institution and stretching traditions in transformative ways with a new strategic plan.

“The intent behind [the strategic plan] is really to set a course for our continuing to be a major force in shaping the way the world evolves—consistent with our values that are rooted in social justice, access to opportunity, and a particular commitment to the Black community and culture. So, our strategic plan has four planks to it—and it’s really about the future. It’s not about fixing what needs to be fixed today, it’s about the future.”
