Built Environment Hero
An MCCEI Built Environment Hero is an individual that breaks through barriers, models social change, demonstrates cross-cultural awareness and inclusivity, and encourages marginalized segments of the population to consider careers in the built environment.
“Ben Morgan infuses developing, promoting, and connecting career opportunities in the built environment as an undertone to each task, meeting, and project he completes,” MCCEI President Jennifer Sproul said during the 2022 Pathway Awards Ceremony, held at the University of Maryland, College Park.
Ben has more than 30 years of industry experience. He has helped deliver numerous high-profile projects in higher education, sports and entertainment, and healthcare over the years. He’s also served as an adjunct professor in construction management at Morgan State University for the past 10 years. His role at Morgan State allows him to impact marginalized students by encouraging them to pursue careers in the built environment and ensuring they have the best training to excel beyond graduation.
“I applaud the MCCEI for collecting talented people, leveraging their intelligence, and forming a team that has moved Maryland to a better place,” said Ben.
