Atlanta, Georgia – The Atlanta-based, Morehouse College, is the only all-male HBCU (Historically Black College University) in the country.
Now the college is moving beyond the U.S. borders to provide online undergraduate degrees to encourage Black adult men to finish their education. Accepting applications now for the fall 2021 semester, men from anywhere around the world will be able to submit an application to become a Morehouse man.
David A. Thomas, PhD, President, Morehouse College is quoted as saying, “We’ll prepare the next generation of men of Morehouse, whether on-campus or online, to meet the crown of high expectations. The world changed a lot since our founding. And while the settings and tools we use to educate our students change with the times, our mission remains constant: to develop men who will lead lives of leadership and service.”
Thomas told the Washington Post that the idea came about after speaking with former students at events and listening to them express their desire to finish school, but unable to due to other priorities.
