Elevating Voices Of Leadership Virtue and Excellence
Morgan EVOLVE exists to empower the women of Morgan State University to be effective leaders who have a sense of purpose, a healthy sense of self and an appreciation for their identity as Black women.
Core Values/ Four Pillars
EVOLVE programming focuses on four core values, referred to as the Four Pillars. These are:
Womanhood: Ladies of EVOLVE display a balance of strength and sensitivity and a commitment to moral and ethical behavior. We are supportive of other women, our sisters. We love others. We are kind, we are wise and we are confident.
Professionalism: Ladies of EVOLVE are skillful and display good judgment, a solid work ethic and we lead with integrity and a commitment to excellence.
Civility: Ladies of EVOLVE are courteous and polite in our behavior and speech.
Service: Ladies of EVOLVE choose to be servants first. We lead through service and by example. We care about the growth and wellbeing of others.

How EVOLVE Works
EVOLVE is designed to be a 3 year experience for students, moving from EVOLVE Scholars (Year 1) to EVOLVE Mentors (Year 2) and Core Council Members (Year 2/3) .
Each academic year 20 - 25 applicants are accepted to join EVOLVE. These students are paired with EVOLVE peer mentors and commit to participating in approximatelty 5 hours of EVOLVE programming each month (2 - 3 programs/month).
Students who consistently participate in EVOLVE programs are expected to demonstrate the following outcomes:
1. An understanding of and commitment to EVOLVE's Four Pillars
2. Effective communication and conflict resolution skills
3. Conduct that is civil, professional and ethical
4. An understanding of their personal leadership style and how to lead with integrity
5. The ability to serve effectively in leadership roles both on and off campus
Your success is our #1 priority!
