    Pros

    Great co workers. Helping students reach their goals.

    Cons

    Not much professional development. Lack of relevant technology.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get rid of directors or people that aren't willing to improve in understanding of their content and technology to prepare students for current world. In addition, let go of people that don't have a passion for their subject or students.

    I worked at Morehouse College full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    I was constantly challenged to dig deeper into my researcher. Presenting an answer to one of my research questions wasn't enough, the professors challenged me to understand they "why" behind it and be able to substantiate it technically.

    Cons

    I enjoyed my entire experience here....I have no bad comments.

    I worked at Morehouse College as an intern for more than 3 years

    Pros

    The ability to work directly under the Morehouse College IT Department is awesome. The student technician is given the sole responsibility of doing maintenance on all student laptops.

    Cons

    Under the IT Dept. the only con is the lack of learning major IT concepts and new technologies. However, a proactive technician could change this.

    Tremendous Lack of Resources for Leading HBCU

    I worked at Morehouse College full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Great people to work for and with. Great decision to give back to the black community in this way.

    Cons

    Lack of focused leadership or team play for the mission in the past. Unwilling to spend on employee moral, resources,or livable wages outside of executive staff. Challenging safety concerns for students and faculty because of the community location and setup of the school. Academic standards for enrollment, value for tuition pricing, student athlete academic support are all strong concerns.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Fundraising and layoffs of undesirable staff will help, but leadership through fear will only reap short term results. To attract and retain quality target market students in volume (lets face it, this was always the issue), Morehouse will have to raise the bar on value given for services provided, and begin to compare their resources offered with that of colleges of comparable academic standard throughout the state, not just local or nationwide HBCU's. Once competitive in this area, the enrollment numbers will rise. Support the athletics program from an academic standpoint. Increase sport budgets, at least for recruiting and equipment purposes, and require coaches to actively recruit "Morehouse standard" student athletes. This will improve the quality of competition to a national level (as opposed to conference level) and increase the profile of the school, thereby driving up applications for enrollment.
