Morris Brown College Partners With the Technical College System of Georgia

Historically Black Morris Brown College in Atlanta has partnered with the Technical College System of Georgia in an unprecedented system-wide degree-granting agreement. Associate degree graduates of the 22 campuses of the Technical College System of Georgia can now seamlessly transfer as juniors  to Morris Brown College to pursue bachelor’s degree programs in organizational management and leadership and hospitality management.

Morris Brown College was founded in 1881 by the African Methodist Episcopal Church. In 2002, the college lost its accreditation due to an unstable financial position. After a $30 million investment in 2021 from CGI Merchant Group, a minority-owned global investment management firm that was earmarked to convert existing facilities into a 150-key upscale hotel and hospitality management training complex, the college regained full accreditation earlier this year.

Morris Brown College President Kevin James said, “We are ecstatic to partner with the Technical College System of Georgia. Thousands of students now have the opportunity to complete a four-year degree at Atlanta’s most affordable accredited HBCU. It is my goal that students complete a quality education and are not saddled in debt and immediately prepared to go into the workforce.”
