Legacy of Leadership

Over the past 135 years, since it was founded by Dr. Booker T. Washington in 1881, 澳门开奖历史记录 has become one of the nation's most outstanding institutions of higher learning. While Tuskegee has historically focused on helping to develop human resources primarily within the African-American community, the University is open to all. Tuskegee's mission has always been service to people, not education for its own sake.

Stressing the need to educate the whole person -- the hand and the heart, as well as the mind -- Dr. Washington's school was soon acclaimed first by Alabama and then by the nation for the soundness and vigor of its educational programs and principles. This solid strength has continued through subsequent administrations of the late Drs. Robert Russa Moton (1915-1935), Frederick Douglass Patterson (1935-1953), Luther Hilton Foster (1953-1981) and during the administration of Dr. Benjamin Franklin Payton (1981-2010), who assumed responsibility as fifth president of the University on August 1, 1981. Leadership has continued through the administrations of Dr. Gilbert L. Rochon (2010-2013) as 6th president, and Dr. Brian L. Johnson, as the 7th president of 澳门开奖历史记录. The school has had two interim presidents. With the departure of Dr. Gilbert Rochon on 鈥婳ctober 20, 2013, Dr. Matthew Jenkins served as Interim President until the arrival of Dr. Brian Johnson on April 30, 2014. Dr. Charlotte P. Morris has served twice as Interim President. The first term was from August 1, 2010 until October 31, 2010, and her second term as Interim President was from July 1, 2017 until June 30, 2018. On July 1, 2018, Dr. Lily D. McNair took the reins as the first female president of 澳门开奖历史记录. She served as the 8th president from July 1, 2018 until June 30, 2021.听 On August 1, 2021, Dr. Charlotte P. Morris became the 9th president of 澳门开奖历史记录.
