Today, it's another episode of Midday on Higher Education, our occasional series of conversations with the presidents of colleges and universities in our region and across Maryland.

Joining Tom for the hour in Studio A is the president of Morgan State University, Dr. David Wilson. He is Morgan’s 10th president and has led the university since 2010.

Morgan is the largest of Maryland’s four Historically Black College or Universities, and a visit to its campus in Northeast Baltimore reveals that it is growing by leaps and bounds. Several new buildings are slated to open in the next few years. And, defying a trend at many other institutions of higher learning, Morgan’s enrollment has increased about 15% over the last decade. In an op-ed earlier this year, Dr. Wilson proposed expanding MSU even further, by merging the University of Baltimore into Morgan State.
