President

Morehouse College

Atlanta, GA

 

The Morehouse College Presidential Search Committee, on behalf of its Board of Trustees, seeks in its 12th president a world class leader ready to execute an ambitious strategic plan, grow enrollment, and continue a rich legacy of producing academically superior, morally conscious, service-oriented leaders in a rapidly changing world.

Founded in 1867 as a private, residential, single-sex, HBCU liberal arts college, Morehouse is renowned for its achievements in education and the impact of its graduates in business, science, the arts, religion, and education. For 150 years, it has stood at the vanguard of educating African American men in the United States and has an outsized impact on higher education domestically. Morehouse has been the incubator of the most important minds of the Civil Rights era and remains vigilant in preparing young men to answer today’s urgent call of social justice. With an operating budget of $101M and an endowment of $130M, it enrolls approximately 2,200 students, and ranks 4th among historically black colleges and universities (HBCUs) in 2017.

This moment represents an extraordinary opportunity for a titan of academia, industry or government to, as president, harness the enduring educational, cultural and intrinsic assets of an institution revered by America and the world. The new president will partner with a committed and resourceful board of trustees, expert faculty, facile administrators and staff, aspiring students and active alumni, in the work of guiding the College toward sustained excellence.

The next President will be an executive of inspired and creative leadership, tenaciously committed to preparing and graduating men of keen intelligence, unimpeachable character, and global perspective. The successful candidate will possess the ability and the enthusiasm to serve as a visible and inspiring advocate for Morehouse College and for the liberal arts. The president will be known for the demonstrated capacity to execute a strategic vision, a record of effective leadership and administrative management in challenging environments, including accomplishments in navigating complexity and change with financial acumen, and prodigious fundraising.
