Morris Brown College (MBC) is a private, coed, liberal arts college located in the Vine City community of Atlanta, Georgia, United States. It is a historically black college affiliated with the African Methodist Episcopal Church. Morris Brown College is a member of the Atlanta University Center (A district designated by the Atlanta City Council). In 2002 it lost its accreditation and federal funding due to a financial mismanagement scandal during the 1998–2002 tenure of Dolores Cross as school president. The United Negro College Fund also terminated its support for the college. Morris Brown College was founded by African Americans affiliated with the African Methodist Episcopal Church, which had expanded in Georgia following the American Civil War. The North Georgia Annual Conference of the AME Church on January 5, 1881, passed a resolution to establish an educational institution in Atlanta for the moral, spiritual, and intellectual growth of Negro boys and girls. The school formally opened its doors on October 15, 1885, with 107 students and nine teachers. Morris Brown was the first educational institution in Georgia under sole African-American patronage.
