Institute for Research, Civic Engagement, and Policy

With a primary mission to bring together individuals and groups to study and develop solutions to complex social problems, this institute will lead investigation and problem-solving for the Andrew Young Center of Global Leadership.

The institute will:

  • create opportunities to investigate the historical and contemporary economic, geopolitical, sociocultural and other contextual factors relevant to the lives of people of African descent and other historically marginalized groups 
  •  create opportunities for faculty members, administrators, students, and external partners to establish and work within culturally inclusive spaces to: 1) develop and refine the curricula of the Morehouse General Education Program, majors, and minors, and 2) generate policy recommendations and innovative solutions to complex global problems.
