A private historically black liberal arts college for men, Morehouse realizes its mission by emphasizing the intellectual and character development of its students.

Founded in 1867 and located in Atlanta, Georgia, Morehouse is an academic community dedicated to teaching, scholarship, and service, and the continuing search for truth as a liberating force. Our work is focused on helping to shape men of acuity, integrity and agency; men who will commit to brotherhood, standing together with their peers to cheer, challenge and support each other; and men who will strive to lead consequential lives, to not just do well for themselves, but to do good in the world.

Our Human Resource Department strives to build a confidential, trustworthy and productive environment by being responsive to all employees; treating them fairly and with respect, and maintaining an open line of communication. Human Resources will provide innovative leadership by being accountable and maintaining a positive customer service environment.
