The mission of the Andrew Young Center for Global Leadership is to train a new generation of leaders to address pressing contemporary, ethical and social concerns, especially those affecting African American life and culture.
Established in 1995 with a $1 million grant from The Coca-Cola Foundation, the Center is distinctive in its capacity to provide leadership education, research and training. Since 2010, Dr. Melvinia Turner King has served in an interim position as the second executive director of LCMC. In conducting research on LCMC and working with the founding Executive Director Dr. Walter Earl Fluker, her book published by Mellon Press, is based on his theoretical work in ethical leadership. Dr. King continues this established legacy by utilizing Fluker’s Ethical Leadership Model©, as an international tool in promoting ethical and academic excellence at Morehouse College.
A national model for academic leadership studies programs, LCMC offers students rich and diverse experiences—from lectures, skills training and small-group discussions with world-class leaders, to mentoring, internship and travel opportunities.
The programs and leadership studies minor are embedded within Morehouse College President Robert M. Franklin’s vision that the College will be a global resource for educated and ethical leadership. The focus is on the cultivation of character (integrity, empathy and hope), civility (recognition, respect, and reverence) and community (compassion, justice and courage)—key components of the Ethical Leadership model as well as primary virtues in the Morehouse leadership tradition.
With exposure to LCMC’s technology-rich environment and its comprehensive, interdisciplinary program, emerging leaders develop both the hard skills (e.g., team building, problem solving) and the soft skills (e.g., empathy, emotional intelligence) necessary for effective ethical leadership in the 21st century.
