Morehouse College: Top Producer of URMs in Physics, 2006

Discussion created by David Harwell on May 7, 2009

With few exceptions, underrepresented minority (URMs) students who study physics find themselves as "solos" at almost any campus in the nation. Morehouse College, a Historically Black College/University (HBCU) for men in Atlanta Georgia graduated the most URM bachelor’s degreed physicists in 2006. The 24 male bachelor’s degree recipients represented 8% of all male URMs who earned these degrees in physics in that year.
