Morehouse is a private, male, historically black liberal arts college whose mission is to produce academically superior, morally conscious leaders. The College provides a rigorous academic curriculum with a focus on leadership development, scholarship, research and global awareness.
Although times change, Morehouses mission remains steadfast: to produce academically superior, morally conscious leaders for the conditions and issues of today, whether today is post-Civil War or turn of the new millennium.
Martin Luther King Jr. led the country through one of its most transforming civic movements; David Satcher resuscitated the issues of health care disparity and access; Maynard Jackson taught the world the value of diversity and equal access as the first African American mayor of Atlanta; Donn Clendenon scored in the history annals and was part of a miracle when he was named a World Series MVP; and Shelton Spike Lee continues to challenge how the world views blacks in life with critically acclaimed films.
All helped change the world. All are Morehouse men.
