Narrative

In 1867, two years after the Civil War ended, Augusta Institute was established in the basement of Springfield Baptist Church in Augusta, Georgia. The school’s primary purpose was to prepare black men for the ministry and teaching. Today, Augusta Institute is Morehouse College, which is located on a 66-acre campus in Atlanta and enjoys an international reputation for producing leaders who have influenced national and world history. Although times change, Morehouse’s 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.

The history of continuous operation of the College is on record and documented by college catalogues from Morehouse College’s inception that are maintained by the College Archivist and the Office of Records and Registration.  Additional records are seen through the permanent academic records of students reflecting selection of courses, programs of study, and graduation with particular degrees in the permanent student records maintained via:

  • Banner Student Information System
  • Prime Database and corresponding printouts
  • Physical off-site storage maintained by the Iron Mountain Corporation in Atlanta, Georgia

In the Admissions and Records semi-annual report, submitted to the Senior Vice-President and Provost, for the spring term of 2007, Morehouse College reported an  enrollment in excess of 2800 students, including a breakdown of those students by classification.  Additional reported data includes graduation date comparisons and graduation projections as included in the tables below.
