Tuskegee University has retained its traditionally uncompromising commitment to the provision of high quality education to a primarily African-American student body since the days of Booker T. Washington, the school’s legendarily indefatigable first principal. Throughout its long history replete with stories of struggle against injustice, Tuskegee University has remained one of the top-ranking Black schools in the country. Today, its focus has shifted to innovation with the establishment of a unique Bioethics and Research program that strives to explore moral issues pertaining to the medical treatment of minorities in the United States.
