Support emerging global leaders at Morehouse!
The Andrew Young Center for Global Leadership
The mission of the Andrew Young Center for Global Leadership is to prepare and inspire a community of
critical thinkers and leaders committed to engaging complex global problems of marginalized groups, especially peoples of African descent. The Andrew Young Center is grounded in the social justice and leadership models of Thurman, Mays and King, and will create intellectual engagement and training opportunities for faculty, students, and the broader national and international community.
The Andrew Young Center is comprised of four program areas:
I. Institute for Academic Research Engagement and Policy
The institute will create opportunities to: 1) examine the historical and contemporary economic, geopolitical, sociocultural and other contextual factors relevant to the lives of people of African descent and other historically marginalized groups; and 2) establish and work within culturally inclusive spaces in an effort to support the development and refining of the curricula of the Morehouse general education program and majors, generate policy recommendations and innovative solutions to complex global problems.

The Institute will equip student scholars, academics, community advocates, and activists in ways that make lived experiences and living spaces better for those who are too often marginalized.
