Morgan Hall was constructed in 1976 because the Business Department was growing exponentially. Comer, where this department was originally housed, was too small. It was decided that a new space needed to be created so they made plans to construct Morgan right next door. The space was contracted by W.T.Booth in Helena, and the architects were Renneker, Smith, Kirkwood, and the associates of Birmingham (Griffith).  At the time it was the "only nationally accredited public, undergraduate-only College of Business" (Griffith). The building was dedicated to Sara Posey Morgan in 1980.  
Sara Morgan began working for Montevallo in 1944, and became a beloved professor on campus.  When she retired in 1980 the Board of Trustees decided to dedicate it in her honor. 
The building now houses the Michael E. Stephens College of Business. It is one of the most successful programs on campus.
