Curriculum Vitae


B.S., Morgan State University
M.Arch, University of Illinois at Urbana - Champaign

Years at Morgan: 15


The greatest blueprint that Morgan State University Professor Dale Glenwood Green will ever encounter was not drawn with ink and paper. Instead, the ‘plan’ was lived out before him by his grandparents. They taught him how to build a life of purpose by valuing history, preserving Black institutions, and being intentional with his existence. These beliefs were in essence inherited, as Professor Green has an ancestry intertwined with some of the most consequential individuals in American history, including his maternal line of Bishop Alexander Wayman and Frederick Douglass; and his paternal line of Reverend Samuel Green and Harriet Tubman.

Professor Green is also a Partner in the fifth oldest African American architectural firm in the nation, Sulton Campbell Britt and Associates, P.C. where he works to develop new sites and preserve historical ones too. He is not only a respected leader in the building industry but also a sought after lecturer and scholar of African American heritage. Amongst his titles, he is The Professor of the Practice for Architecture and Historic Preservation at Morgan State University. As he teaches his students, he knows he is doing more than building their careers. He is answering the call of his ancestors, shaping young minds and skylines in the process.
