2012-2013 Annual Report

Letter from the President: Dear Alumni and Friends: We are delighted to share some of the significant highlights of the past ten years in this presentation of our tenth year report: A Decade of Transformational Progress. When we began this amazing journey a little over ten years ago, the path to our progress was paved with many stones of challenge. However, the challenge became the opportunity that informed our vision—our vision influenced our change—our change inspired our momentum, and the constancy of our values and traditions redefined our timeless niche. So here we are today, a decade or so later, continuing to press forward to the upward mark that bespeaks the excellence, relevance and influence that characterize this special place we know as Tougaloo. We thank you for your supportive investments as we journey together to create the future. When I consider our progress—how we got from there to here—I know without any doubt that above all— God Smiles on Tougaloo College. Aside from the generous and sustained support of alumni and friends like you, what has truly made the difference in our ability to keep moving forward is the shared vision of our trustees, alumni, administrators, faculty and staff that manifested into the shared responsibility of excellent teamwork. We were united in our commitment that Tougaloo College would indeed stand and prosper. From day one, our aim has been to institute the organizational infrastructures necessary to support a high quality academic enterprise; build a legacy of fiscal sustainability equal to our legacy of academic excellence; stabilize and increase student enrollment, increase alumni engagement; cultivate and secure sustained donors to increase our base of financial support; enhance our image, including the physical campus improvements, and upgrade and advance our campus technology to facilitate twenty-first century learning and operations. Our strategic plans reflected these goals. Our case for support—Vision 2020—Creating a Community of Change echoed the same goals in a different framework. We have experienced transformative progress because we never lost sight of our mission and vision. We were committed to building Tougaloo College, not for the next five or ten years but the next 100 years. We are building this institution to last. Constancy and change are the defining elements of the past ten years. The constancy is our resolute commitment to academic excellence and social responsibility. The constancy is our expectations that our students will be prepared to meet the challenges of informed citizenship and empowered to change the world. The constancy is a dedicated faculty that ensures quality teaching and learning are occurring in the classroom. The constancy is a supportive, nurturing living and learning environment that complements the classroom experience. The constancy is our enduring values and the spirit that compels us to move forward despite challenges and even seemingly realities of circumstances. The change is the redesign and refreshing of our curricula to expand our offerings, integrate specialized knowledge areas with our core liberal arts curriculum and the way we deliver education today. The change is the centrality of research to our mission of teaching and service. The change is the diversity of our faculty and students and the globalization of our curricula. The change is the presence of Fulbright and ALLEX scholars who teach Arabic, Mandarin Chinese, Japanese, and Korean. The change is the technological innovations that provide campus-wide connectivity, wireless technology, smart classrooms, an

integrated information management system, a unified telecommunications system and a campus security system with camera coverage and electronic door access. The change is the physical transformation of our campus—the restoration of historic Woodworth Chapel, the restoration in progress of the Mansion, the construction of the Bennie G. Thompson Academic and Civil Rights Research Center that explicitly symbolizes the meaning of a Tougaloo education and other major campus renovations, including street improvements and landscaping. The constancy and change are intermingled in the timeless feel and relatedness of our campus structures and the relationship between alumni and students today, a visual portrayal of Where History Meets the Future. The constancy is the productivity of our faculty and students and a culture of high expectations. This tenth year report, through words and photographs, chronicles the memorable highlights of ten years of transformative progress and our collective efforts to appropriately balance constancy and change as we continue to position this institution for sustained growth and achievement on every front. As we look to the future, we will continue to develop Tougaloo College into a recognized distinguished international institution, a center of cultural and intellectual richness, an engine of social and economic opportunity and an instrument of upward mobility for the people of our state, region and nation. True to its tradition, Tougaloo College will change but our commitment to prepare our students to effect change in a global economy by providing the best quality of educational opportunities and learning experiences will not. In 1869, students came to Tougaloo College to improve their lives and change the society in which they live and the lives of others. Regardless of where they live or what they study, in 2069 and 2102, we want them to be able to do the same. Thank you for supporting this special place through your time, talents, and dollars. Tougaloo stands today on the threshold of prosperity because friends like you cared enough to make a difference through your investment. We appreciate and value you. Sincerely,

Beverly W. Hogan

A Retrospective: 2002-2012: Decade of Transformational Progress


n May 2002, Dr. Beverly W. Hogan became the thirteenth president of Tougaloo College and the first woman ever to hold the position. At the time, our country and our college faced unforeseen challenges, and no one could have imagined what lay ahead for them. Americans, struggling to recover from the

September 11, 2001 attacks, had sent troops to the mountains of Afghanistan to hunt down the terrorists who claimed responsibility for the attacks. The ensuing decade would bring a second war in the Middle East, regional disasters, Hurricane Katrina and the BP oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico, and, in 2008, a national economic crisis. Tougaloo College faced trials of its own. Like many other private historically black colleges and universities (HBCUs), Tougaloo was confronting questions about the relevance of the HBCU and even about the promised value of a college education. More daunting still was Tougaloo’s bleak financial picture, which was exacerbated by the nation’s economic downturn and related shifts in the philanthropic landscape and cutbacks in government funding. Indeed, when Dr. Hogan accepted the presidency in 2002, Tougaloo was at a crossroad. Economic issues and questions of our continued existence were paramount. The College needed a leader who would straightforwardly address these serious matters. We needed a president who had the commitment and experience and skills to guide the College through the changing environment of higher education, one who would also question long-standing, often patriarchal, hegemonies and hierarchies at the institution. The challenges have been formidable; but just as it has done historically, Tougaloo survived the difficulties and met the challenges. With President Beverly Hogan at the helm, the College evolved from crisis management to transformational management, from an unstable institution to one that is ready to stand and prosper.

Our vision is clear. It is grounded in confidence, hope and the promise of a brighter future for Tougaloo College. Beverly Wade Hogan, 2002

President Hogan’s visionary leadership and her ability to inspire others have produced a decade of transformational progress at Tougaloo College. The new president began her tenure with an intense urgency and clarity of purpose. Working with a leadership team, she immediately put in place an organizational system that strengthened performance, productivity, and accountability; fostered collaboration among the various divisions and disciplines; and produced greater effectiveness in reaching the goals of the College. Throughout the decade, she has remained committed to a bold strategic agenda for securing the future of Tougaloo College. Through her personal dedication and an approach based upon inclusion and a shared vision among the stakeholders, she has steered the College steadily toward achieving that agenda.

A Six-Point Strategic Agenda •

Maintaining academic excellence and enhancing academic offerings

Stabilizing and increasing enrollment

Improving Campus Infrastructure and Technological Capabilities

Strengthening the Systems for Financial Management

Increasing Alumni Engagement

Increasing Fundraising from All Sources

The strategic agenda has provided focus and direction for all ongoing plans since then. Building upon previous plans and believing in our vision for the future, we have also stayed closely attuned to the current reality, especially in the following areas: student recruitment and retention efforts; online education; expansion of our academic offerings, including more specialized knowledge areas and graduate programs; appropriate expansion of co-curricular activities; increased integration of technology into programs and pedagogy; and maintaining and improving our physical environment. An integrated assessment process has allowed the institution to self-monitor its effectiveness, and we have steadily progressed in achieving many of our goals. Certainly, these successes have grown out of the collective and dedicated efforts of the board of trustees, administration, faculty/staff, students, the loyal support of our alumni and other supporters.

her own words

While we must and will hold fast to our values and traditions of academic excellence and social commitment, we must also dare to think and act in new ways to ensure our stability, relevance and capacity to serve the needs of the twenty-first century student. Our core values will not change and will serve to inform the changes the College will need to make…Operative terms must be: “evolve,” “innovate” and “reach.” We must take calculated risks in order to reap incalculable rewards. We must reach higher than ever before. —Beverly Wade Hogan, President

The Academic Enterprise: Excellence, Relevance

and Influence

Despite Tougaloo’s longstanding history of academic excellence, it became evident, in 2002, that maintaining this venerable position would require changes. Today’s millennial students are different from those even ten years ago. Not only do they come with different challenges, they bring different expectations as well. We knew that to carry out our stated mission—to prepare students to think critically, compete in the global marketplace, and sustain our democracy—the College would have to strengthen and expand its academic offerings, implement a variety of experiential learning opportunities, and create a technologically advanced environment. Accordingly, Tougaloo College has found new resources and developed relevant, cutting edge programs, initiatives, and partnerships. The Office of Academic Affairs introduced opportunities for students and faculty to study and conduct research in some of the country’s leading laboratories and most prestigious institutions. Our students have studied and traveled abroad in such places as Turkey, India, Ghana, South Africa, Italy, England, and France. Best exemplifying Tougaloo’s academic excellence are the achievements of our students and alumni. The College has maintained a distinguished record of preparing students for careers in the STEM disciplines of medicine, medical research, and public health. Historically, the College has produced over 40% of the African American physicians and dentists practicing in the state of Mississippi. Currently, Tougaloo ranks in the top 25 among U.S. institutions whose graduates earn their Ph.D.s in the science and engineering disciplines. It also ranks among the top historically black colleges and universities in the graduation of females with undergraduate degrees in the physical sciences. Tougaloo students have performed exceptionally well not only in scientific disciplines. Our students have achieved outstanding performances across all disciplines, amassing an impressive list of accomplishments. More than one-third of the state’s African American attorneys, educational leaders, and teachers graduated from Tougaloo College. We have continued over the past decade to send over 60% of our students to graduate or professional school immediately after graduation. Additional accomplishments of our students and alumni are represented throughout this report.

Throughout its history, Tougaloo College has sustained a tradition of scholarly achievement and academic excellence. During the past decade, the College has received numerous prestigious national rankings: The Princeton Review and US World & News Report, top 20 HBCUs and among Best Colleges in the Southeast; Washington Monthly, consistently among the top 30 US institutions; the National Science Foundation and Academy of Sciences, consistently among the top 50 US institutions whose graduates earn their Ph.D. degrees in the science and engineering disciplines; Tougaloo College ranked number 6 among the HBCUs with the highest graduation rates, and among the best-ranked colleges with the most affordable price tag; Ebony Magazine identified, in 2012, Tougaloo College as the number 2 HBCU in the sciences.

more than 100 students, and more than twenty-five (25) percent of them have entered medical or dental schools. The others have pursued graduate and professional degrees in pharmacy, optometry, nursing and public health, and law.

The Honors Program The Honors Program at Tougaloo College, established in 2004, offers a rigorous, engaging liberal arts curriculum for exceptional students. Through cultural enrichment and research opportunities, the program stimulates students’ intellectual and creative potential. Tougaloo’s honors students have held leadership positions on campus and studied abroad. The recipients of national awards and commendations, our honors graduates have earned scholarships and fellowships to leading graduate schools. In 2007, two honor students, Mia Ellis and Gregory Johnson, were among the five students selected by the Mellon Foundation, from a pool of 30 Mellon Scholars nationwide, to travel and conduct research in South Africa. Gregory Johnson was also selected by the World Wildlife Fund and Nissan North America to participate in a research expedition and environmental leadership program in Brazil. In 2011, more than a dozen students traveled to Turkey for a two-week study abroad experience. They were afforded the opportunity to learn about a prosperous democratic nation with a Muslim majority, even as protesters were fighting for democracy in other Islamic nations.

In 2010, the Mellon Foundation awarded Tougaloo a planning grant for the globalization of the curriculum. In 2012, the College was awarded another grant to facilitate further integration and institutionalization of international education into all aspects of student learning and outcomes. Additionally, President Hogan was instrumental in brokering an agreement with Wonkwang University in the Republic of South Africa, which has enhanced our program. The Critical Language program was introduced during the academic year of 2007-2008, when the College acquired its first Fulbright scholar and entered into a partnership with the Alliance for Language Learning and Educational Exchange Foundation (ALLEX). To date, the Fulbright and ALLEX scholars at Tougaloo have taught the critical languages of Arabic, Mandarin Chinese, Japanese and Korean. Such global initiatives have increased diversity among our faculty and students.

Innovative Programs In recent years, we have also established several innovative and cutting edge programs and initiatives: the Department of Mass Communications; HIMS/Health Informatics Programs (the first post-baccalaureate certification program); the Center for Undergraduate Research, the Center for Civic Engagement and Social Responsibility; the Center for Continuing Education and Professional Studies; and a Hotel and Hospitality Management Program. In 2011, the Academic Division embarked on a project called Re-Imagining the Curriculum, which will define and strengthen the academic enterprise at Tougaloo College for twenty-first century learners. All academic divisions, departments, and programs were challenged to re-evaluate their programs and thus, to re-imagine the academic enterprise to ensure our continued excellence, relevance, and influence. The process is ongoing, but the first two stages have been completed: Phase 1—Research and Structural Re-imagining; and Phase 2—Building and Advising/Mentoring Model. In 2006-2007 and again in 2011-2012, Tougaloo College received from the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools, Commission on Colleges (SACS) a reaffirmation of accreditation.

special focus was slavery in the home states of the two institutions, Rhode Island and Mississippi, which were both centers of slave trade and labor. The Partnership installed the first smart classroom at Tougaloo in 2010, providing opportunities for students and faculty to engage in electronic communication in lecture halls. Brown University’s Warren Alpert Medical School accepted seven students from the 2012 graduating class, an unprecedented achievement. These outstanding students had been recognized as sophomores through the Partnership’s early identification program in medicine.

Stellar Faculty At the heart of the academic enterprise is a faculty of



dedicated to engaging the minds of students. Tougaloo College has been able to attract and maintain a stellar faculty because of our strong academic reputation and the high caliber of our students. Over twothirds of our faculty members have terminal degrees in their disciplines, many from the country’s most prestigious institutions of higher learning. The administration encourages and expects faculty members to hold students to high standards, to engage them in learning beyond the classroom, and simultaneously to inspire them to work harder and achieve more. Increasing the professional development opportunities for our faculty is a priority that has led to the creation of the Faculty Development Center, in 2008. Faculty members have participated in New York University’s Summer Faculty Resource Network Seminar, Brown University, and the Leadership Alliance, a consortium of 29 leading research and teaching colleges and universities. The number of resident experts and published scholars among our faculty is impressive and their knowledge, exhaustive. The strength and commitment of our faculty and staff coupled with our nurturing living and learning environment have contributed to our unprecedented student/alumni achievements and contributions to society. These are the greatest testaments to the College’s legacy of academic excellence and culture of social responsibility.

federal government. In 2004 and 2005, Tougaloo College students received the prestigious Boys and Girls Club National Youth of the Year. The 2005 recipient, Jarvis McInnis, a 2009 alumnus, was also awarded the Harry S. Truman Scholar Fellowship, which cultivates scholars dedicated to public service leadership. A number of students have represented the College in the Leadership Alliance Summer Research Early Identification Program. This eight-to-ten-week internship allows students to explore research careers in science, engineering, social sciences and humanities. In 2007, the College Concert Choir toured in Italy, at the 18th Annual Days of International Choir Music sponsored by the Associazione Gruppi Corali of Verona, Italy.




While the College has always attracted serious learners, we experienced a period in the early stages of her presidency, when retention and graduation rates were below an acceptable level. To address these issues, the College created the Office of Enrollment Management. Consequently, there have been steady increases

A Retrospective

• 2002-2012: Decade of Transformational Progress


in those rates over the past decade. In the 2012 academic year, the College had its largest enrollment (942 students) in more than a dozen years. Even with our increased student population, we have kept classes small enough to preserve the faculty’s nurturing, mentoring relationships with students. Our retention rate of 78% remains higher than the average national rate. More than two-thirds of Tougaloo students have chosen majors in the natural or social sciences. This indicates, that the lion share of, our students’ interests are in disciplines key to the democracy of social change and the STEM related areas. Simultaneously, we have experienced an increase in the number of honors graduates and maintained a high percentage of students entering graduate and professional schools upon graduation. Tougaloo’s legacy of attracting and educating young people who are serious about scholarship and service remains strong.

Athletics The Department of Athletics has also expanded and flourished during this decade. In 2005, President Hogan appointed an Athletic Director who was charged with creating additional new and diverse opportunities for students. The department added two new sports—baseball and volleyball—to the existing programs of basketball, cross-country running, and tennis for men and women, and golf for men. The department consistently promotes high achievement on and off the court and playing field, annually compiling an Academic and Athletic Performance Report to highlight the academic achievements of student athletes. In 2009-2010, more than 40% of the student athletes maintained a 3.0 or above grade point average. In 2011-2012, the student athletes maintained a 2.97 grade point average, with the highest grade point being a 3.90. Fifty-two (52) percent of the student athletes maintained a 3.0 or above grade point. Fifty-five (55) percent of the seniors graduated at the regular time, and over half of these graduated with honors. The men’s basketball team won its first Gulf Coast Athletic Conference (GCAC) regular season CoChampionship, in 2007. That same year, the team also participated in its first National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics (NAIA) National Championship. The men’s basketball program has accomplished three more regular season championships and a tournament championship. With a commitment to increased student diversity, the department has recruited student athletes of all races and nationalities. In 2011, the

department successfully recruited two Brazilian student athletes. Since being revitalized a decade ago, the Tougaloo College athletic program has flourished.

Campus Restoration



Under President Hogan’s leadership, the College has made significant enhancements to our physical plant and technology infrastructure, including both new construction and renovations. The bricks-andmortar improvements have been about much than creating a more pleasing appearance. They have truly transformed the campus—improving the living and learning environment and bolstering our ability to attract, retain, and educate students. One of the crowning capital achievements in recent years is the historic restoration of our beloved Woodworth Chapel, which was built in 1901. Completed in January of 2003, the award-winning $5.3 million restoration project was funded by the National Parks Service and by alumni and friends. Today, the Woodworth Chapel stands as the spiritual and physical center of the campus green. With a grant from the U.S. Department of Interior, the restoration of the Mansion exterior was completed in the summer of 2012. The oldest building on campus, the Mansion was constructed in 1860, as the plantation home of John M. Boddie, from whom the land for the College was purchased. Restoration included upgrading the overall structure of the house, rehabilitating the windows, rebuilding the porches and balconies, replacing the siding and trim and repainting it in the original mid-nineteenth century color scheme. The Mansion now stands as a perfect complement to Woodworth Chapel and awaits the completion of its interior restoration. Through the opportunity of the HBCU 1% loan program made available to institutions affected by Hurricane Katrina, Tougaloo College was able to construct the Bennie G. Thompson Academic and Civil Rights Research Center, make significant renovations to campus facilities and upgrade the landscape of our

campus environment. The Bennie G. Thompson Academic and Civil Rights Research Center, the first new major academic facility constructed on the College’s campus in almost 40 years, was opened in May 2011. This state-of-the art facility is located where Beard Hall once stood and includes a 150-seat recital quality lecture hall, four classrooms complete with technology, and a large conference room. It also includes an art vault and gallery, which enables the College to store, manage, and exhibit its extensive art collections. Managed by the Office of Facility Management, the physical improvements to the campus have been extensive in recent years. These improvement include a new entrance sign and landscaping at the campus gate, a large digital information sign at the front of the campus, a new ornamental, steel-panel fence along the College’s West County Line Road border, road and sidewalk improvements, new landscaping throughout the campus green, a new intramural athletic field, new street lights, and new or expanded parking lots at several dormitories, and the exterior painting of Pope Cottage, the Alumni House, Ballard and Jamerson Halls.

Technological Advancements The Office of Information Technology has made remarkable advances to provide our entire campus with the latest learning, security and communications tools available. More than one-hundred projects were initiated to bring the technology resources on the main campus, as well as four off-campus locations. Several of these large projects were complex, which required multiple years to plan and complete, and therefore, were done in phases. For example, the College’s fiber-optic local area network (LAN) was implemented over three-and-one-half years and has provided much needed network reliability and stability to every building on campus. In 2011, the College moved to a new and fully integrated information management system, Jenzabar. With this system all sectors of the College may communicate seamlessly with each another, ensuring accurate and consistent data. A separate internal website, the Intranet, manages communications within the campus community and provides a single location to access manuals, handbooks, policies and procedures, forms, and other documents.


Tougaloo College

• A Retrospective: 2002-2012 and 2012-2013 Annual Report

The College’s external website,, was improved with a total new look, and brought in-house (replacing a contract vendor). This allows for regular updates and interactions with campus. The external homepage was redesigned, and sector and faculty Web pages were systematically added, updated and developed. Additional designs, features and functions were added in subsequent years. In working with the Office of Institutional Advancement, major improvements and implementations to the donation page, now provides easier accessibility for donors to donate online. More importantly, new technologies incorporated into the classrooms are creating fresh approaches to teaching, learning, and the transmission of knowledge. The College has added smart classrooms, video streaming capabilities and wireless technology that enhance our students’ connection to national and global opportunities and ideas in every discipline. These technological advancements are critical to the service of the millennial student, who has so integrated technology into the way they acquire knowledge. All of these advancements have allowed for greater a Unified Communications Network (UCN), expansion of the two-way digital radio system, a more in-depth cyber security systems, and implementation of a Health Information Exchange (HIE) for an Accountable Care Organization (ACO).

Improving Financial Management A decade ago Tougaloo College was heavily in debt. With a sense of urgency and with the cooperation of the Board of Trustees and the Office of Finance and Administration, President Hogan navigated the development of policies and procedures to improve the College’s financial management and systems of accountability. The aim was to balance the budget and begin reducing the debt. Over the past decade, the College has not only attained these goals; it has remained affordable, increasing tuition only twice during the entire period. To accomplish such, we have built a strong, sustainable foundation based upon our

• 2002-2012: Decade of Transformational Progress


resourcefulness in managing limited dollars. Through responsible management, we have maximized our dollars and focused on strategic optimization of our assets. In 2012, the Financial Ratio Analysis Study of the thirty-seven UNCF member institutions revealed that Tougaloo College ranked number 11 in overall financial health. Using the Composite Financial Indicator as a measure, we analyzed six categories: overall financial health, core ratios, resource sufficiency and flexibility, resource management, asset performance, and management and operating results. In all areas, the College performed better than or equal to the larger and better-endowed institutions. Each year the College undergoes an audit by an independent certified public accounting firm, which conducts its audit in accordance with generally accepted auditing principles. Effective the fiscal year ending June 30, 2005 through June 30, 2012, the College has received “unqualified” (without reservation) opinions on the financial statements and A-133 audit report with no concerns identified. During these years, the College has increased its net assets. The Tougaloo College of today has first-rate financial management systems. We have institutionalized internal controls, budgetary controls, and feedback, operating with accountability, responsibility, and integrity. Additionally, the Office of Institutional Research, Assessment and Planning (IRAP) has conducted a compliance certification audit using the new Principles of Accreditation: Foundation for Quality Enhancement (QEP). This audit has resulted in the reaffirmation, twice, of the College’s accreditation standing with the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools, Commission on Colleges (SACS). These positive results have transpired in the midst of a weak economy, leaving the College poised for prosperity and posterity.

Owens Health


Wellness Center

A commitment to service is not only something that Tougaloo College teaches its students, it is a principle that the College has embraced throughout its history. Since its inception in 1997, the George A. and Ruth B. Owens Health, Wellness and Human Resources Center (OHWC) has served as a primary community outreach component of the College, particularly through the operation of a primary care clinic, which offers medical and dental services to students, faculty, staff and the community at large. The Center has provided medical and healthy lifestyle services to our students and the community through its collaborations with Delta Health Partners and several agencies of government, both state and federal. The facility funds itself primarily through grants and contracts, with some of the most recognizable names in private and federal funding, such as the Health Resources Services Administration, the WK Kellogg Foundation, Centers for Medicare Services, the Mississippi State Department of Health, Department of Education, the United Way Foundation, the University of Mississippi Medical Center, and the Centers for Disease Control. In addition, OHWC has cultivated strategic partnerships with the Mississippi State Department of Health, the University of Mississippi Medical Center, the Jackson Medical Mall Foundation, Mississippi Health Advocacy Program, and Corporation for National and Community Service, among others. The Center aims to reduce health disparities through its important outreach programs. These include the Family Life Center, which addresses needs of at-risk youth and their families, and the Healthy Start Program, which concentrates on maternal and child health issues in the Mississippi Delta.

Alumni Engagement/Resource Development In her inaugural address, President Hogan announced that increasing alumni engagement and financial support from private and public sources would be a priority of her administration. Her visionary leadership and her influence among a large sphere of individuals have furthered our fundraising efforts and positioned the College for prosperity. Guided by the College’s Strategic Plans and priorities, the Office of Institutional Advancement has set forth fundraising plans to support the essential goals of the College and strengthen and diversify our donor base, including alumni. The fundraising campaign centers around promoting Tougaloo’s unique assets and strengths—our legacy of academic excellence and achievement and our tradition

• 2002-2012: Decade of Transformational Progress


of social change A 2007 case for support, Vision 2020: Creating a Community of Change, underscored the same goals and priorities. Despite the depressed economy, the College has moved upward in the acquisition of both public and private dollars. Because strong alumni engagement and support are foundational for building and sustaining successful fundraising, President Hogan has been resolute in her efforts to increase alumni engagement. The offices of Institutional Advancement and Alumni Affairs have direct responsibility for keeping alumni informed and providing diverse approaches toward cultivating their support. Their efforts have resulted in steady increases in alumni participation and contributions over the past decade. Alumni giving has steadily increased from $538,838 in 2010-2011 to $1 million in 2012-2013. Tougaloo alumni’s philanthropic leadership and imagination are points of significant pride. In 2002, alumnus Edward Blackmon and his wife Barbara gave the College $1,149,300 to renovate Judson Cross Hall to house the administrative offices. It has been renamed the Blackmon Building in their honor. Other alumni have established endowed chairs and scholarships and staked permanent claims to preserving our rich legacy of academic excellence and social justice. The support of alumni Congressman Bennie G. Thompson and Dr. London Thompson has fully funded the Bennie G. Thompson Endowed Chair in the Social Sciences. Alumna Marion Tresvant has established, in honor of her parents, the Perry and Annie Lee McNeil Endowed Scholarship with a pledge of $1 million, of which she has already contributed more than $600,000. For the past ten years, the College has focused efforts on expanding support among other constituents,

as well. We have given major emphasis to building a culture of philanthropy that is sustained by systematic, comprehensive and accountable fundraising. As a result, revenue from other sources, including foundations and corporations, has also increased steadily. In 2009-2010, gifts from all sources, excluding the government, totaled $2,352,000. Each succeeding year, the totals have increased, ranging from a low of $4,149,936 to a high of $4,999,430. Grants have come from the Mellon Foundation, Southern Education Foundation, George Allen Trust, WK Kellogg Foundation, Blue Cross Blue Shield Foundation, Robert M. Hearin Support Foundation, Lettie Pate Whitehead Foundation, and Charles A. Frueauff Foundation. Corporate gifts include Kroger’s Delta Marketing Area, AT&T, Entergy, Trustmark Bank, Nissan, BankPlus, Sanderson Farms, and others. In 2003, the Office of Sponsored Programs and Research was established to administer and, thereby, increase awards of government sponsored research, programs and projects. Since 2006, the College has received $92 million in grants and contracts, with major portions coming from the National Science Foundation, National Institutes of Health, Health and Human Services, and the Department of Education.

National Prominence The College has developed initiatives that brand and strategically market its assets. Since 1988, the College has hosted an annual business luncheon as a catalyst that has expanded our base and built partnerships in the business and corporate community. Past speakers include an impressive roster of the nation’s most prominent business leaders: U.S. News & World Report Publisher, Peter Bernstein; American Express CEO, Kenneth Chenault; Allstate CEO, Edward Liddy; Kroger CEO, Joseph Pichler; the Coca-Cola Company Senior Vice President for Global Community Connections, Ingrid Saunders Jones; Economist/ Political Strategist, Ira Magaziner; Wall Street Broker, Marianne Spraggins; FORBES Publisher, Timothy Forbes; and FedEx Senior Vice President for Governmental Affairs, Gina F. Adams. In keeping with its identification as the Cradle of the Civil Rights Movement, the College has remained a magnet for civil rights conferences, many of which have garnered national and international attention. In 2004, the College hosted the Fortieth Anniversary of the Freedom Summer, and in 2011, we observed the 50th Anniversary of the Freedom Riders. The College announced plans in 2012 for an eighteen-month series of events commemorating the

fiftieth anniversary of the Civil Rights Movement, with individual programs devoted to the assassination of Medgar Evers (1963), Freedom Summer (1964), and the passage of the Civil Rights Act (1964). In addition, Tougaloo students, faculty, and the community have welcomed to the campus and the pulpit of Woodworth Chapel many nationally known figures with important connections to civil rights; these include former President William Jefferson Clinton, Julian Bond, former US Senator John Kerry, attorney and former advisor to president Clinton, Vernon Jordan, and actor and activist Harry Belafonte. In 2012, the College joined the Goldring/Woldenberg Institute of Southern Jewish Life to host the exhibit Beyond Swastika and Jim Crow: Jewish Refugee Scholars at Black Colleges. Featuring the late Tougaloo Professor Ernst Borinski, the exhibit explored the encounter between Jewish scholars and their students and considered their impact on the Civil Right Movement and American society.

Epilogue So, God continues to smile on Tougaloo College. The College has experienced an upward trajectory since 2002. Under the strong and unwavering leadership of President Beverly W. Hogan, her cabinet, and the Board of Trustees, the College has made extraordinary gains and within a single decade has repositioned itself as a powerhouse of post-secondary education with a national reputation for academic excellence and civic engagement. Even as we create an environment that nurtures and inspires millennial students, we continue to build upon the rich heritage the College has developed since its founding in 1869. At Tougaloo College, we are building for generations yet unborn, preparing to educate young people for another 144 years. As we reach beyond the work of our founders and beyond the span of any single individual, ours is the collective work of generations. Proud of our past and encouraged for the future, Tougaloo College remains a Mississippi treasure and an American landmark.

he 2012-2013 academic year emerged as a watershed period for Tougaloo College, the semi-colon following a decade of transformational progress. Unprecedented accomplishments, unparalleled innovations, and reflective retrospection characterize the year. With renewed energy and excitement,

the College has taken advantage of its improved posture. We have built upon our strengths of academic excellence and social commitment and simultaneously found new and innovative ways to serve twenty-first century learners and to ensure relevance and financial stability. The nexus of constancy and change has never been more apparent, as we look to our past to determine the way forward—a true “sankofa” effect.

Annual Report

• 2012-2013: A Year of Progress and Promise


Academics. The Academic Enterprise has completed the initial phases (Research and Structural Re-imagining and Building an Advising/Mentoring Model). Through this process, academic divisions, departments and offices have developed strategies to reposition the College for excellence as we address the challenges and changes of educating twenty-first century learners.

Social Significance. The eighteen-month commemoration of the fiftieth anniversary of the Civil Rights Movement has underscored and reinvigorated Tougaloo’s tradition as an agent for social change. The commemorative events not only honor the past contributions, but also address contemporary issues of justice and equality.

Environment. As we have transformed the campus and enhanced our living-learning environment with meaningful changes in appearance and accessibility, we have been careful to maintain our historical architecture integrity.

Distinction. Bolstered by a decade of progress, the College has used our distinctive strengths— academic excellence and commitment to service—as the principal message for increasing support from all sources and for enriching marketing and promotional efforts.

Finances. The long-anticipated Loan Modification for the HBCU Katrina Loan (also known as the HBCU 1% loan) has enhanced our financial posture. Submission of the board-approved loan documents to the U.S. Department of Education culminates three and one-half years of persistent efforts by President Hogan and the leaderships of Dillard University, Southern University at New Orleans, and Xavier University.

The People. The placement of several key members of the president’s cabinet, and strategic additions to the faculty, along with an influx of new and returning students eager for knowledge and personal transformation, have better positioned the institution for greatness, perhaps now more than ever.

Academic Excellence: Re-imagined



and Influence

Recognition of our excellence has come from numerous publication and sources. Our rankings remain consistent.

The Princeton Review and U.S. News and World Report listed as… One of the “Best Colleges in the Southeast”

U.S. News and World Report listed as…Among the top 20 of “America’s Best Colleges”

Washington Monthly listed as….Among the top liberal arts institutions in the nation

Ebony Magazine identified as the number 2 HBCU in the sciences

Among the top 25 U.S. institutions whose graduates earn Ph.D.’s in the science and engineering disciplines

Among the top historically black colleges and universities in the graduation of females with undergraduate degrees in the physical sciences.

While re-imagining the academic enterprise is a continuous process, we have completed the initial phases. Armed with a clear vision and lessons learned, the academic divisions, departments and offices have developed strategies to keep the College moving forward—maintaining its national rankings and, above all, responding to the emerging interests of today’s students and educating them to compete in the global economy. The goal of creating an optimum environment where students may acquire, generate, and share knowledge grows directly from a sense of obligation to expose our students to different cultures, languages and modes of thinking. Global experience has become a basic requirement for a well-rounded education. We are responding to this imperative in multiple ways. With an increased emphasis on academic rigor and scholarly pursuits, the achievements of faculty, staff and students have reached new heights, nationally and internationally. Most recently, Tougaloo College was chosen as a flagship institution to explore political, economic, and religious issues in the Understanding the New Europe program sponsored by the Faculty Resource Network at New York University. Our faculty has continued to prepare, inspire, and expect students to excel. In response, our students have defied odds and marshaled achievements that

of the


During the year, we introduced several innovative initiatives to help maintain the college’s competitive edge. Not only do these new programs respond to the emerging needs of students, they fulfill the needs of society as well. •

Tougaloo College and Friends of Children of Mississippi, Inc., formed a partnership to provide a childcare center (0-4 years) on the campus by 2014. Besides improving the availability and quality of childcare and delivering educational services for children and their families, the center will offer experiential learning opportunities for our students.

The Education Division has submitted an application to the Mississippi Department of Education and Southern Association of Colleges and Schools (SACS) to launch master’s programs in Teacher Education and Childhood Development.

Our international studies program, funded by the Mellon Foundation, has continued to provide global experiences for faculty and students. Our Fulbright and the Alliance for Language Learning and Educational Exchange Foundation (ALLEX) scholars who teach Arabic, Chinese, Japanese and Korean, have introduced our students to other languages and cultures. We must do more, however, to integrate international education into our curriculum.

The Annual Humanities Festival, held in March, focused attention on global issues and creative pursuits. Featured among the full schedule were a panel discussion on the much-heralded film Django Unchained, a presentation by the noted scholar Okolo Rashid on The Endangered Timbuktu Manuscripts, and a production of the iconic, award-winning play Vagina Monologues, which featured, among accomplished student thespians, Provost Betty Parker Smith in her return to the Tougaloo stage.

The Africa and Oceanic Treasures Exhibit officially opened July 17, 2013, in the Bennie G. Thompson Academic and Civil Rights Research Center. Donated to the College by Genevieve McMillan and Reba Stewart Foundation, the exhibit displays rare pieces of sculpture, objects of daily use, textiles and jewelry.

More Accomplishments Three major grant applications were funded for the Division of Natural Science at Tougaloo College this year: •

In collaboration with Dr. Pamela Russ, Dean of the Division of Education, Instruction and Supervision, Dr. Bettye Sue Hennington developed the NOYCE Secondary Teacher Scholarship project, a collaborative venture between Education and Natural Sciences for the training of STEM teachers. The program will directly address the critical shortage of teachers, particularly in the underserved districts in the Mississippi Delta.

opportunities and summer internships may take the students out of state or even out of the country, lending a global component to the program. The SLMS offers a comprehensive approach to graduating well-rounded, scientifically literate students who are committed to community. •

The Howard Hughes Medical Institute (HHMI) Program nurtures leaders in scientific research and medicine using an interdisciplinary community approach to professional learning. HHMI scholars will receive academic scholarships as well as funding for summer research and will work under a research mentor for at least two years.

Tougaloo College was the recipient of the James Patterson (noted mystery novelist) Teacher Education Scholarship. Eight teacher education majors will receive four-year scholarships at $5,000 each. The Department of Mass Communication received a $51,000 donation from the Donna and Jim Barksdale Foundation to purchase Apple computers and software for two computer labs for digital and print journalism production and TV/Broadcast Journalism. The gift yielded seventeen state-of-the-art desktop and laptop computers with supporting hardware and software. Tougaloo dedicated the labs to the Barksdales in appreciation for their generous contribution. The department also received a $5,000 grant from AT&T to purchase MAC Computers.

University of Rochester Medical Center; VA Hospital, Jackson, Mississippi; University of Mississippi Medical Center; the University of Georgia. Fourteen students and two faculty members travelled to Accra, Ghana, for a cultural immersion experience marking the culmination of an Honors Program Study Abroad course. The course, Ghana: A Social, Political, and Cultural Examination, focused on expanding the students’ understanding of Ghana’s rising importance in the world, and correcting false assumptions and misperceptions about the African continent. The Tougaloo College Concert Choir completed its spring tour to rousing applause at every stop— Washington, D.C., Providence, Rhode Island, and New York, New York.

Brown Tougaloo Partnership The Brown Tougaloo Partnership (BTP) approaches its fiftieth anniversary, in 2014, stronger than ever. Tougaloo President Hogan delivered the 2013 baccalaureate address at Brown University. The partnership co-sponsored readings of Martin Luther King’s “Letters from the Birmingham Jail” with faculty participants from Brown and Tougaloo and BTP advisory committee members. Live stream discussions took place with students from both campuses and also featured lectures by Rev. Bernice King from Brown and Dr. Aaron Shirley from Tougaloo. Working in collaboration with Brown-Tougaloo Partnership (BTP) colleagues, funding was secured to celebrate the partnership’s fiftieth anniversary during Brown’s 250th Anniversary, 2014. The first grant ($20,000) supports a four-day event to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the BTP and the 50th anniversary of Freedom Summer. The second grant ($10,000) supports a “life and careers” panel of Semester Exchange and (Early Identification Program (EIP) Medicine students as well as the creation of a memory book, collected stories from alumni who have participated in BTP projects over its fifty-year history. The project also provides the initial funding to establish an annual scholar in-residence program and a faculty/student symposium that would alternate between the campuses. During the 2013 Fall semester, the Department of Mathematics/Computer Science is hosting Mr. Matthew Parks, a graduate student from Brown University, as he works to complete his dissertation. Mr. Parks teaches two special topics courses in mathematics and serves as a much-anticipated complement to the department’s faculty research endeavors.

Commitment to Service: Ensuring our Relevance and Influence In




College announced an eighteenmonth-long series of events to commemorate the fiftieth anniversary of important Civil Rights events, including the assassination of Medgar Evers, Freedom




passing of the Civil Rights Act. Often called the Cradle of the Civil Rights Movement in Mississippi, Tougaloo College understands the importance—even the imperative—of taking the lead in commemorating the Civil Rights Movement. We pay tribute to the courageous women and men to who so profoundly changed the social, political, and economic fibers of our nation and influenced global democracy. In commemorating three pivotal elements of the Movement, the College also embraces our own role as an agent of change in the ongoing struggle for justice and reaffirms our commitment to educate students for participation in our democracy. As the College continues to address democracy and issues of equity and inclusion, this commemoration embraces our future as forcefully as it honors the past. The commemorative events will also provide opportunities for us, as Mississippians, to showcase to the rest of the world the progress made towards equal participation in the democratic process. The College established a Commemorative Civil Rights Commission, comprised of national leaders and luminaries. Invitations went to individuals who have provided courageous leadership and devoted service to the causes of social justice and equality and to the Movement that changed America and influenced global democracy. Their charge was to advise the College in the organization of commemorative activities. Below are the names of the men and women who have agreed to serve the College now, as members of this Commission.

Tougaloo College

• A Retrospective: 2002-2012 and 2012-2013 Annual Report

The debut event, the Commemorative Gala and Tougaloo Honors, took place May 18, 2013, at the Jackson Convention Complex. The following individuals were honorees: Marian Wright Edelman, Esq., founder and president of the Children’s Defense Fund (CDF) and advocate for disadvantaged children and their families; Herman Jack Geiger, M.D., the Arthur C. Logan, Professor Emeritus of Community Medicine, City University of New York Medical School and founding member and Past President of Physicians for Human Rights; Robert P. (Bob) Moses, founder and president of the Algebra Project, Inc. and a pivotal organizer and driving force for the civil rights movement, including the Student Non-Violent Coordinating Committee (SNCC), Mississippi Freedom Summer Project which registered minority voters and organized the Mississippi Freedom Democratic Party (MFDP); Morris S. Dees, Jr., Esq., co-founder, the Southern Law Poverty Center (SPLC), known for lawsuits that have crippled some of America’s most notorious white supremacy hate groups.

Following the Commemorative Gala was a Retrospective on the Woolworth Sit-in and a two-day-long Commemoration of the Anniversary of the Assassination of Medgar Evers. Attended by hundreds, including civil rights icons scholars, activists, community leaders and students, these events facilitated discussions on relevant and provocative topics, garnered extensive media coverage and brought widespread attention to the distinguished history of Tougaloo College. These events also helped to recruit and hire two bright and emerging civil rights scholars, Drs. Michael V. Williams and Daphne Chamberlain, who have joined the faculty in political science and history, respectively. The Woodworth Chapel Legacy Initiative, a brick paver fundraiser, was designed to create a memorial plaza honoring civil rights activists who shaped the movement that transformed America. The opportunity to purchase commemorative brick pavers became a catalytic force for alumni engagement, resulting in many first-time donors and unbridled excitement among reunion classes. The project appealed as well to other interested individuals and groups of Tougaloo admirers who wanted to create a lasting legacy. The official dedication and unveiling of Woodworth Chapel Memorial Plaza took place during Founders Week 2012. The dedication featured a stirring address by Dr. Alvin O. Jackson, a Tougaloo trustee and senior

The Center has continued to provide outreach services to the larger community, particularly health evaluation, as well as primary and preventive healthcare, delivering a collective effort to help students and community members live a healthier lifestyle. The Center provides our students and others with regular, free health screenings, health fairs and fitness activities such as Zumba, boot camps and aerobics. The Center received a $150,000 grant from the WK Kellogg Foundation for its Family Life Center to help male third-graders from Jackson’s Walton Elementary School develop self esteem and understand what it means to be a responsible young man.

We are very excited to be included in this landmark program. It will significantly improve the methodology, efficiency and speed with which we address both internal and external crises. President Beverly W. Hogan

Seizing Opportunities


Sustained Growth



This past year, the Department of Homeland Security selected the College for inclusion in the Campus Resilience Pilot project. This consortium of institutions will participate in an evaluation of the institution’s ability to address and recover from both natural and man-made disasters. Tougaloo College is the only HBCU included. In August 2012, Tougaloo acquired the television station, WUFX TV, Channel 35 through the generosity of American Spirit Media. This is a remarkable opportunity for the College to further its academic

mission and its economic interests as well. We have recently completed the renewal process for the FCC license and changed the station’s call letters to WLOO TV35. Plans are underway to develop the station and integrate it into the academic and marketing mission of the College. Several programming and income-producing endeavors are being considered. February 2013, marked the twenty-fifth anniversary of the Tougaloo College Business Luncheon. In keeping with tradition, the College paid special recognition to the founders and original supporters: Reuben V. Anderson, Donald E. Meiners, Leland R. Speed, E.B. “Bud” Robinson, Jr, and Frank R. Day (posthumously). Attended by prominent state and local business and corporate executives and decision makers, the luncheon featured as its guest speaker Thomas B. Henson, President/CEO and founder of American Spirit Media, LLC. (American Spirit Media donated the commercial television to the College.) The luncheon provided a venue to showcase Tougaloo’s accomplishments and some of the important contributions its alumni, students, and faculty have made to the community, state, nation and global society, as we simultaneously built a case for continued support.

Infrastructure Improvements Renovation of the Medgar Evers House Museum has been completed. The house was the site for several events commemorating the fiftieth anniversary of the assassination of Medgar Evers. Funding for this project was secured through a $250,000 grant from the U.S. Department of the Interior’s Save America’s Treasures Grant program and a $210,000 grant from the Mississippi Department of Archives and History. The recent accelerated construction activities on campus have led to the installation of new technology infrastructure and equipment in several strategic locations: Branch, Renner, New Women’s, and Berkshire dormitories; and the Bennie G. Thompson Building, the library, Kincheloe Hall, and Blackmon Building. Additionally, the campus wireless network has improved signal strength and increased both its capacity and its coverage. We have installed a new and more effective telecommunications system, which includes monitors for messaging located in buildings across the campus. These monitors provide another option, along with the SchoolCast campus alert system, to allow the College to communicate with students, as well as the entire campus community, about breaking news, weather, and routine announcements. The new entrance to the College incorporated an electronic billboard that has allowed the College to more effectively promote campus events that are open to the public.

These included Founders Week 2012, the 2013 Choir Tour, Business Luncheon, Commencement 2012, and the Commemorative Gala and Tougaloo Honors. Additionally, the College received 41 federal/state grants totaling $15,610.130. By all accounts, the Commemorative Gala and Tougaloo Honors was a resounding success—an evening of elegance and a historic gathering of committed and socially conscious individuals. With the leadership of the Chairman of the Board of Trustees, LeRoy G. Walker, Jr. and President Hogan and the support of the business and corporate community, alumni and friends of the movement, the event generated nearly $500,000. Among the contributions was a gift of $50,000.00 from the Freedom Riders Foundation to establish an endowed student scholarship. Tougaloo Board of Trustee member and Freedom Rider Henry “Hank” Thomas stated, “Students who receive these scholarships will have to sign a pledge to ‘pay it forward’”.
