The PBS’ NewsHour (12/10) reports Spelman College’s Beverly Daniel Tatum is one of four college presidents to receive the Carnegie Corporation’s annual Academic Leadership Award. The foundation cited Tatum’s work in encouraging women to pursue STEM careers. In an interview with correspondent Gwen Ifill, Tatum said “when they come to Spelman, they are exposed to faculty who represent a very diverse group of faculty, men and women – 52 percent of our STEM faculty are women. A third of them are women of color, so that they’re a broad range of role models and they see that the sky really is the limit.”
