Welcome from the Vice President of Student Development

Dear Men of Morehouse,

As a 1992 graduate of Morehouse and the Vice President of Student Development, I am proud to welcome you to the House!!

At Morehouse, our #1 priority is developing men.  We realize that you have chosen to matriculate at Morehouse because of our exceptional academic programs, world-class faculty, and distinguished graduates.  Although you have accomplished much during your high school journey, you are now joining a brotherhood of other highly talented young men. As iron sharpens iron, I challenge you to do more, think deeper, speak more explicit, and dress better—not arrogantly, but because “our” community need more men to serve and lead.

The division of student development is dedicated and committed to helping you to become a Morehouse Man by enriching your collegiate experience outside of the classroom—from over 60 campus organizations to intercollegiate athletic programs to career opportunities.  I encourage you to get involved, meet new friends, and make your four years at Morehouse transformative.

I look forward to knowing and working with each of you.

In the spirit of Morehouse, I remain

Sincerely Yours, 

Said Sewell '92, Ph.D.
Vice President of Student Development
