Morehouse College is a historically Black, private liberal arts institution for men located in Atlanta, Georgia. Established in 1867, its focus is to educate men who are intellectually, socially and morally equipped to meet the challenges, and opportunities of their professions and communities. Noted alumni 16th U.S. Surgeon General David Satcher, Academy Award winning filmmaker and director Spike Lee, four (4) Rhodes Scholars and several college presidents and leaders in various industries has shown that the Morehouse model is viable and a proven success. The National Science Foundation ranked Morehouse as the Number One producer of black men who receive terminal or doctorate degrees in multiple areas of study.
The MIEC was established to continue the Morehouse legacy of educating dynamic leaders in interdisciplinary areas of study. The center is grounded in Morehouse legacy and committed to building a Center that supports bridging the growing gap between the wealth of non-minorities (specifically African American men) and that of people of color and the providing an opportunity for African American men to address social levels of assimilation in society through innovation and entrepreneurship. The MIEC is taking Morehouse College to the next level and assuming a leadership role in establishing a Center now that will address the social economic issues unique to African American men in pursuing entrepreneurship.
