Former School of Engineering Dean Honored By His Alma Mater

Morgan State University congratulates Dr. Eugene DeLoatch, former dean of the university’s Clarence M. Mitchell School of Engineering for being selected by the President and Board of Trustees at Tougaloo College to receive the honorary Doctor of Humanities degree. Dr. DeLoatch was a dual degree graduate of Tougaloo College in Mississippi, where he received his baccalaureate degree in Mathematics in 1959. In that same year, he also received the Bachelor of Arts degree in Electrical Engineering from Lafayette College in Pennsylvania. Both schools have honored DeLoatch with honorary degrees, in 1988 from Lafayette College and in May of this year in the case of Tougaloo College. DeLoatch is the inaugural dean of Morgan’s engineering school building it from the ground up to become one of the nation’s largest producers of African American engineers. He retired from the position in 2016 after 32 years at the helm.
