Revitalizing Northwood: Morgan State University’s Role in Economic and Community Development

  • 203 Accesses

Abstract

This chapter presents Morgan State University’s role in revitalizing its community targeting economic and business development. Recognizing that building and maintaining significant university-community partnerships is a complex process, the purpose of this chapter is to discuss the role of an urban university in the redevelopment process of its surrounding community, drawing upon the current Morgan State University-Northwood Commons project as a frame of reference. In keeping with its mission, and with its position as Baltimore’s anchor urban research institution, Morgan State University is uniquely positioned to contribute its community’s business and economic development. This case study is especially unique in that as a Historically Black University, Morgan State has a particular opportunity to directly impact its neighborhood, which is made up almost exclusively of African Americans, and which has suffered from severe economic inequality over the past 50 years.
