The Walter E. Massey Leadership Center facility extends the legacy of Morehouse College into the 21st century by shaping Morehouse students into ethical leaders, ecumenical thinkers and sound businessmen. Today, more than ever, the world needs great leaders, ethical leaders—individuals who have learned to think creatively and act boldly to address global, political and social issues.

The Walter E. Massey Leadership Center facility will enable the College to function as a national and international leadership laboratory and an institutional crossroad that is responsive to the increasing need for ethnically diverse leadership in a broad range of academic, community, governmental and business environments.

Located at the edge of the historic West End district of Atlanta, at the corners of West End Avenue, Westview Drive and Wellborn Street, the Walter E. Massey Leadership Center facility provides an exciting and welcoming entrance to campus.

The 70,000-square-foot facility will become a key landmark for the College, anchoring the south campus expansion detailed in the College’s Master Plan.
