Morehouse College, the historically Black liberal arts institution for men in Atlanta, has received a $3 million gift from Prologis, the global leader in logistics real estate, to create an endowed fund that will expand opportunities for students of color to study real estate and prepare for lucrative careers with top firms in the industry. The Prologis Endowment will help to support academic programs and research launched by the new Morehouse Real Estate Institute.
The Morehouse Real Estate Institute will expand access to career pathways within the Division of Business and Economics Division. The new real estate classes, which will be available in 2024, will be open to all Atlanta University Students, which includes underrepresented students of color at Morehouse, Spelman College, and Clark Atlanta University. The Institute’s students will study the fundamentals of real estate and learn about the benefits of investing in commercial and residential properties to build wealth. The Institute will also serve as a pipeline for internships, entrepreneurship, and social change in the industry.
