The socioeconomic diversity of its student body is a proud tradition at Morehouse. A consequence of this, and the limitations on scholarship funds, however, is that many of our students obtain employment to help defray the cost of their education. It is the strategic vision of the College that the work experience should be designed as one that reinforces the academic mission of the College. In November of 1997, the Morehouse faculty voted to adopt a "learning outcome" approach to teaching and assessment. It is now the vision of the College that work experiences, both federally and institutionally supported, should "facilitate" one of more or more of these learning outcomes. Therefore, priority will be given to those employment opportunities that best match the new goals of the work-study program.
Through work-study experiences, students learn more about what they can do and how they may apply their talents and skills in the most productive manner possible, while earning money to help pay for heir education. Not only do students develop more positive attitudes toward work and service and gain a head start by developing productive work habits, they frequently improve their academic achievement.
The revitalization work-study program at Morehouse will focus on providing better service as well as increased opportunities for students who wish to work. IT will build on the Federal Work-Study Program. The program will be administered centrally by the Morehouse student employment manager to ensure better service to both students and their employers, better coordination with other financial aid initiatives, consistency of treatment, and compliance with all governmental and institutional laws, rules and regulations. All offices or departments needing student workers will draw on the central bank of student employees registered with the Student Employment Office.
We are looking forward to achieving new levels of service and satisfaction as we move to implement this bold, new program.
