    About Morehouse College

    The mission of Morehouse College is to develop men with disciplined minds who will lead lives of leadership and service. A private historically black liberal arts college for men, Morehouse realizes this mission by emphasizing the intellectual and character development of its students. In addition, the College assumes special responsibility for teaching the history and culture of black people. Founded in 1867 and located in Atlanta, Georgia, Morehouse is an academic community dedicated to teaching, scholarship, and service, and the continuing search for truth as a liberating force. As such, the College offers instructional programs in three divisions - business and economics, humanities and social sciences, and science and mathematics - as well as extracurricular activities that: * develop skills in oral and written communications, analytical and critical thinking, and interpersonal relationships; * foster an understanding and appreciation of world cultures, artistic and creative expression, and the nature of the physical universe; * promote understanding and appreciation of the specific knowledge and skills needed for the pursuit of professional careers and/or graduate study, and; * cultivate the personal attributes of self-confidence, tolerance, morality, ethical behavior, spirituality, humility, a global perspective, and a commitment to social justice. The College seeks students who are willing to carry the torch of excellence and who are willing to pay the price of gaining strength and confidence by confronting adversity, mastering their fears, and achieving success by earning it. In pursuit of its mission, Morehouse challenges itself to be among the very finest liberal arts institutions in the world.
