Student Development Services

The Division of Student Development pays special attention to how students gain knowledge in a post-secondary educational environment and the College's role in assisting with that knowledge acquisition. We understand that the whole Morehouse College environment is educational and the Division of Student Development uses the whole environment to ensure that our students achieve full development. The offices that assists with this process are listed below:

Career Planning and Placement/Non-Business Majors: The Office offers a variety of services to assist students in exploring their career interests, designing effective career strategies, and identifying the resources (people, and organizations) that will assist in their selection of a major and ultimately their transition into the workforce. 

Campus Safety: Campus Safety prevents crime through effective patrol deployment, constant visibility, and residential life involvement. It achieves this goal by maintaining a high standard of professional conduct, regulating campus access, utilizing effective technology for campus security and managing and controlling special events.

Health Services: The primary goal of the James B. Ellison, Sr. Student Health Center (SHC) is to provide the most comprehensive, carefully monitored medical care. A strong emphasis is placed on lifestyle modification, health awareness, and education.

International Student Services (OISS): OISS exists to provide resources, support, and assistance to international students with achieving their educational goals while also ensuring institutional compliance with federal immigration regulations and standards.  

The Office of the Chapel: The Chapel engages a diverse community of students, faculty, staff, alumni and global leaders in exploring and integrating faith and reason to support vocational and spiritual discernment and character formation.

Recreation Intramurals and Fitness: The goal of RIF is to provide fitness, wellness, intramural as well as recreational programs and activities for the students, alumni, faculty, staff, their spouses, and children. 

Residential Housing and Education: The Office of Housing and Residential Education (OHRE) provides a safe and inclusive living and learning environment that provides for a continuum of in-classroom experiences within the residential platform. The residential platform offers a transformational and holistic experience that provides a better embrace of students at Morehouse College.  

Student Counseling & Disabilities Center (SCDC): SCDC supports the development of psychologically healthy students who are able to perform at the highest academic levels. This is achieved by providing students with support through reducing psychological problems and distress, and by enhancing intellectual, social, physical, emotional, and spiritual growth. The SCDC delivers high quality, culturally competent services to Morehouse College students and the larger campus community. Additionally, the Center offers disability services that ensure all students with disabilities have equal access to educational opportunities at Morehouse College.

Office of Student Life: The Office of Student Life (OSL) provides opportunities through registered student organizations and Student Life sponsored activities. These activities are designed to cultivate learning, improve student development, provide leadership opportunities, complement academic programs, and enhance character development. OSL through its activities collaborates with students, faculty, staff, and community leaders to promote analytical and critical thinking, build interpersonal skills, offer support creative expression, and recognize and address current trends.
