For more than 155 years, Morehouse College has been at the forefront of transformational change, developing enterprising men who use their influence to defy the mainstream and improve society.
The College is at a critical juncture in its evolution, and that is why we have launched this exciting effort to raise $500 million for Making Men of Consequence: The Campaign for Morehouse College.
“MOREHOUSE FACULTY HELP STUDENTS TO BECOME STRONG INTELLECTUALLY, GIVE THEM OPPORTUNITIES TO RISE AS LEADERS, AND PROVIDE THEM WITH TRANSFORMATIVE EXPERIENCES, INCLUDING WORKING WITH THEIR PROFESSORS AS THEY CONDUCT IMPORTANT RESEARCH.”

Support for Academics
The beating heart of the academic enterprise is its faculty. Their passion for students, scholarship and research, and their outreach to community sets the tenor of the College mission. Behind every rising Man of Morehouse are dedicated professors poised to spark his intellect and passion. These professors do more than teach—they mentor, inspire and challenge students to expand their horizons and elevate their ambitions. They nurture their students’ spirit of inquiry and fuel their tenacious drive to contribute to the world.
Morehouse faculty are vital, not only to teaching and mentoring, but also for conducting the research that addresses societal problems for the nation and for communities of color. Armed with the right resources and infrastructure, our esteemed professors can be positioned to lead groundbreaking research with impactful social and economic benefits.
The Transformation Continues.
Morehouse assumes a special responsibility to teach Black history and culture and explore issues impacting people of color. More critical and relevant than ever, we must grow the scope and visibility of our research and expand the world’s understanding of equity, inclusivity, and social justice.
Within the next five years, our eminent faculty will undergo a transformation of its own, as 30 percent of Morehouse faculty reach retirement age. These talented scholars will be replaced by the next generation of academic leaders who are committed to Morehouse values and culture. New scholars will continue to uphold the rigor and transformational teachings that develop Men of Morehouse, while bringing in new perspectives as we forge ahead toward a global future.
As a world-class institution, we must compete within the higher education marketplace to recruit outstanding professors with competitive salaries and benefits. In addition, we must attract prominent, endowed professors supported by extraordinary funding and other resources for their research.
Attracting the Highest-Quality Faculty.
Awarding our lauded professors with endowed positions allows us to attract superior faculty at the top of their field. As an endowed position honors scholarly expertise, it also serves to elevate the position and prominence of the College. In addition to enriching the academic environment, it highlights a faculty member’s superior scholarship and contributions in their respective field and draws exceptional scholars from other institutions into collaborations.
