We develop a talented pipeline of world class practitioners, innovators, policy makers, leaders and researchers who are equipped to transform and improve educational outcomes in urban and underserved communities.

We have an unrelenting focus on social justice, educational excellence, equity, and ethical leadership. We embed these core values in all aspects of the student experience and the work of the center.

As the nation’s only all-male historically black higher education institution, Morehouse College is uniquely suited to answer the call to prepare black male teachers for classrooms across America effectively. Additionally, the Morehouse Center for Excellence in Education (MCEE) is an incubator for aspiring educators and those committed to excellent educational outcomes for all students.

Morehouse College addresses the root causes and not just symptoms of the Black male teacher shortage. Our students are compelled by a calling and sense of duty to serve the communities they come from while also addressing the inequities and disparities that disproportionately impact people of color.


The mission of the Morehouse College Center for Excellence in Education is to prepare students for a wide range of careers in education or related fields. In keeping with our institutional mandate to prepare students to lead consequential lives, all academic and strategic activities of MCEE and the Education Department are aligned with the Morehouse College standards of excellence that promote agency, leadership, service, integrity, and brotherhood.
