Andrew Young Center for Global Leadership

Why Morehouse

Leaders, we believe, are made, not born. Since 1867, Morehouse College has been producing world-class leaders – men who are intellectually, socially and morally equipped to meet the challenges and opportunities of their communities and professions.

Morehouse President Robert M. Franklin ’75 says the Morehouse formula for developing leaders is based on the firm belief that leaders must possess a “social conscience that is the living voice of social justice, informing us of what is right and good and true for society, not simply individuals."

The Leadership Center provides opportunities for students to learn to be caring, committed, ethical leaders in the 21st century. It provides them opportunities to practice and test their skills and character by serving others.

This leadership development process is the essence of our mission as an institution of higher education and a cornerstone of our vision to be one of the finest, undergraduate liberal arts colleges in the nation.
