AUCC Anchor Institution Network
The AUC Consortium Anchor Institution Network is a gathering of faculty and administrators from Clark Atlanta University, Morehouse College, Morehouse School of Medicine and Spelman College who are engaged in efforts to revitalize our surrounding community. Collectively, our members play a significant role in supporting development in West Atlanta through capacity building/resource development, housing and economic development, environmental sustainability, service learning, volunteerism or other strategies.
