The Chronicle of Higher Education - August 27, 2012

Morris Brown College has filed for federal bankruptcy protection in an effort to prevent foreclosure and to stop the college’s properties from being sold at an auction, according to The Atlanta Journal-Constitution. Stanley J. Pritchett, the historically black college’s president, said the move would give the college time to regroup. The college lost its accreditation a decade ago and is more than $30-million in debt.
