How Morris Brown College (in forclosure) Can Be Saved
By: Marybeth Gasman | Posted: September 1, 2012 at 12:34 AM

The Root DC's Marybeth Gasman has several solid pieces of advice and unconventional ideas to revitalize the struggling HBCU.

Morris Brown is a treasured institution established by former slaves and with a rich history of educating and empowering African Americans. But Morris Brown has a problem; actually it has several problems.

First: The AME Church controls the institution, but it does not support the college in a manner that allows it to operate successfully. In order to function and get on its feet (steadily on its feet), Morris Brown needs the support of the AME Church in full.

Second: Morris Brown has a board, led by a bishop in the AME Church. This board does not have access to wealth, and its members do not personally contribute to the institution at the level that is needed. It is time to completely reconfigure the board, bringing on people who are aligned with the needs of the college — including its educational and financial needs, and the occupational fields of Morris Brown’s graduates.

Third: Although the small college has graduated some prominent alumni such as civil rights leader Hosea Williams and Pulitzer Prize winning author James McPherson, its alumni do not support it in any substantial way. (The alumni giving rate hovers at around 4 percent.) Morris Brown cannot survive without financial support from its alumni.

NO, I WOULD NOT VOTE TO SAVE IT UNDER IT'S (SOS) SAME 'OL SYSTEM STATUS. These HBCUs all need to be revamped to fit todays needs. Saving a sinking ship is not the thing to do. However, it would be a wise investment to make a bid on the property which included a huge statium, dormatories and multiple other buildings and facilities sitting on prime land connected to 2 Marta Train Stations and within walking distance to everything including the Georgia Dome.

I don't think very much of any of the HBCUs which are all outdated in their curriculums, management and their stsytm of charging students instaed of creating a system where students could be inturns to a new FOR PROFIT industry. Why oh why (as educated as the professors claim to be) have they not figured out another way to have a college other than to be accredited by white folk and depending on money from white folk? Why even go to school, if you do not graduate THINKERS? This entire HBCU SYSTEM is as old as the days of slavery and still producing GOOD 'OL SLAVE MINDED GRADUATES... Unable to DO FOR SELF!!!
