Morehouse College Alumni Action Summit

Thank you for your support thus far as we prepare for a Morehouse College Commencement 2013.   As you know, we are expecting an unusually high and enthusiastic turnout at commencement this year.  The College and the Association want to ask you for one more show of support by giving us your time and your ideas.

To leverage all the energy, and make the most of the moment, we are launching the first in a series of events designed to enable alumni and the College to collaborate on the future of Morehouse College.

We encourage you to attend this first event – as the kickoff, it will give you the opportunity to help shape the work that will transform the College and enable it to evolve into a world-class 21st-century institution.


Day: May 17, 2013

Time : 1:45 pm

Place : Sale Hall, Alumni Association Annual Meeting
