Leadership Center


The Leadership Center at Morehouse College, established in 1995 with a generous grant from The Coca-Cola Foundation, was created to reflect the ideal of the Beloved Community embraced by former Morehouse College President Benjamin E. Mays, Howard Thurman, Martin Luther King Jr. and other distinguished Morehouse alumni. Beloved Community provides the context for the cultivation of character, civility and community as primary values in the development of leaders.

The Leadership Center’s program also reflects former Morehouse College President Walter E. Massey’s vision to create a “World House at Morehouse” – a microcosm of the knowledge, skills and character needed for future civil society.

To help implement that goal, Morehouse currently is engaged in a drive to raise funds to build a state-of-the art facility to house the academic departments, institutes and projects that will be part of a comprehensive interdisciplinary leadership program featuring the latest technological resources and strategies. A planning committee comprised of leadership scholars, faculty, staff, students, alumni and community leaders is developing this program.
