Students Who Stand Out.
Clark Atlanta University students engage in ground-breaking research, academic competitions and high impact practices, which challenge, inspire and prepare them for a lifetime of leadership and service. The provide a transformative learning environment for students to equip them with the tools they need to become actively engaged in their career and community upon graduation. CAU offers a college experience with the personal attention of small class sizes; the legacy, warmth, and energy of the historically black college experience; and the resources of a research university with access to the largest prostate and ovarian cancer research centers in the southeast, one of the longest running jazz stations in the world, and combined degree programs.
Morehouse College is the world’s only HBCU for men. It has produced four Rhodes Scholars, several college presidents, and leaders in many other fields. It is the nation’s top producer of black males who receive doctorates in education, life and physical sciences, math and computer sciences, psychology and social sciences, as well as humanities and the arts. Although times change, Morehouse’s mission remains steadfast: to produce academically superior, morally conscious leaders for the conditions and issues of today. Nearly three-fourths of our students volunteer within the community. Many Morehouse students also travel or study abroad, awakening them to the complexities of a global community. Morehouse is committed to training the leaders who will change their communities, the nation and the world.
Spelman College has been recognized among the top 100 national liberal arts colleges, and has been the No. 1 historically Black college and university in the country for more than a decade, according to U.S. News & World Report. Spelman’s graduation rate is the highest among all HBCUs. The college is among the most selective women’s college in the nation, educates a higher number of Gates Millennium Scholars than any other college or university in the country, and is annually recognized as one of the leading producers of Fulbright Fellowship winners. Spelman is among the most selective women’s college in the nation and is one of the nation’s leading producers of black female medical students and doctoral candidates in science, technology, engineering and mathematics and has been recognized by the National Science Foundation as the leading producer of black women who go on to earn doctorates in the sciences.
