Homecoming Statement from President Wilson and Chairman Davidson

Message from Robert C. Davidson Jr, Chairman of the Board of Trustees

As Chairman of the Morehouse College Board of Trustees, it is my pleasure to welcome you to the Morehouse College Board of Trustee's website. The Board of Trustees is the ultimate governing authority of the College. The Board appoints the President, who leads and manages the institution; approves the College's mission and purpose, institutional policies and changes in academic programs; guards the College's finances; approves the awarding of degrees; and sets an example of generous financial support.

The current Board consists of 36 members. Fifteen (15) are alumni of the College and 8 have or have had children attend the College. In addition, the 36 includes 3 faculty and 3 student trustees. The president of the National Alumni Association is also a member. There are also faculty members that serve as visitors on committees. The trustees represent a cross section of the country and several have international ties. All share a deep love for Morehouse College and a strong believe in its mission and legacy.

The Board meets three times during the academic year. In between meetings, there
are committee meetings and updates from the President and staff. Every 3 years, the Board conducts a retreat to evaluate the College's strategic priorities.

The standing committees of the Board are: Executive, Athletics, Audit, Compensation,
Development, Educational Policy, Finance, Investment, Physical Plant, Student Affairs and Trusteeship and Governance.

I encourage you to visit the College's website often to learn more about Morehouse and to keep abreast of the myriad events and activities taking place on campus.
