Morgan Male Initiative on Leadership & Excellence
The Morgan Male Initiative on Leadership and Excellence (MILE) was founded by Dr. Jason De'Souza in 2003 at Morgan State University. In 2008, the program was adopted by the Office of Residence Life and Housing, under the leadership of Dr. Douglas F. Gwynn. Since 2008, the program continues to thrive as its participants are succeeding academically and personally.
The Morgan MILE was created to support and guide African American males in their pursuit of personal and academic success. The mission of the Morgan MILE is to enhance the graduation and retention rates for Morgan State University’s male population through academics, enrichment, and encouragement. The core values of the Morgan MILE are:
· Self Affirmation
· Academic Achievement
· Exploration and Exposure
· Civic Responsibility and Teamwork
· Leadership and Excellence
