Welcome Believers in the Preservation of Morris Brown College!


Morris Brown College, Established 1881
This website marks the united efforts of college students, administrators, alumni, and concerned individuals alike to help in the task of saving Morris Brown College. On December 9, 2002 the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools rescinded the accreditation of Morris Brown College, one of our nations’ oldest historically black colleges. Now that the appeal process is over, we are asking you to help us take action in raising funds to help alleviate the debt that they have incurred.

On April 7, 2003, the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools voted to uphold the decision to rescind the accreditation of Morris Brown College. Because of this decision, the present task at hand must be to raise the funds that are necessary to ensure the longevity of the institution. On this website you will find links to news clips that explain what happened during the appeal as well as the changes that Morris Brown has undergone since the hearing. Although the battle is lost, the war is far from over. It is now time for us to literally put out money where our mouths are. I implore all visitors to this site to join us in taking a step towards contributing to the solution by passing this word on to your friends, family, colleagues -to anyone who cares about education and believes in this worthy cause.

We urge you to proceed to your neighborhood Bank of America, any location in the continental U.S., and make a monetary donation towards the debt that Morris Brown has incurred. Please show your support by “giving forward” to a school that is in dire need. We are committed and are bound by the African adage: "I am because we are, and because we are; therefore I am." It is with the many that individuals may thrive; therefore it is our responsibility to make sure that we do all that is possible to restore Morris Brown to full accreditation status. Please join us in this struggle that binds us all.
