“Failing is a stepping stone to progress,” says UMBC graduate faculty instructor, Dr. John J. Johnson, IV. Behind every success story is a story of where someone learned a lesson and grew stronger from that.

In this episode of UMBC’s Mic’D Up podcast, Dr. Johnson shares his insights on the field of engineering, how students can best succeed, and profound lessons he learned from learning to embrace the art of failing.

Dr. Johnson credits his HBCU experience at Tuskegee Institute and growing up in Tuskegee, AL as key components in his development.  “I stand on broad shoulders.  So much of who I am and what I do is because of my Tuskegee experience.”
