Spelman president gets Carnegie award | www.ajc.com

Spelman College President Beverly Tatum is one of four college presidents receiving a prestigious national academic leadership award from the Carnegie Corp. of New York on Monday. Tatum, who has been Spelman’s president since 2002, is the first award recipient from a historically black college and university and the first in Georgia.

The foundation noted Tatum’s efforts in championing women in science, technology, engineering and math fields at the university. Between 1997 and 2006, Spelman prepared more African-American women to earn doctorates in STEM fields than Georgia Tech, Duke and the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill combined, according to the National Science Foundation.
