Clark Atlanta University Learn Lead Change


 Dear CAU Family and Friends:

Clark Atlanta University has achieved so much during its history and through the legacies of our historic parent institutions, Atlanta University (1865) and Clark College (1869). Our two parent institutions provided a firm foundation and gave us so much to build upon as we have continued to advance CAU toward effectiveness and excellence since it was formed by the consolidation of Atlanta University and Clark College in 1988.

We continue to bear witness to our students excelling in the classroom and in academic, performing, and athletic competitions, while members of our talented faculty continue to be published and quoted widely in their areas of expertise. We also continue to be proud of our alumni as they succeed in their chosen professions and careers and exemplify leadership in the service of others. It is always inspiring to read a newspaper, magazine, or newsletter and see where someone from CAU has excelled.

These successes serve to position the university in a national and international context.

We have been pleased to work with President Carlton E. Brown and members of the Board of Trustees, faculty, deans and alumni to intensify our outreach to the philanthropic community. Together, we have visited hundreds of business, philanthropic and community leaders while also developing closer ties to the United Methodist Church and the UNCF. We continue to engage and re-engage alumni and we are so pleased that our efforts are resulting in greater alumni involvement and support.

As you browse the pages of our website, you will quickly see why there is much of which we have to be proud and why we encourage you to continue supporting Clark Atlanta; contributions of your time, talent, and treasure will make a tangible difference for many years to come. With continued support from our alumni, faculty, staff, the business and philanthropic community, we will be well positioned to continue strengthening our institution and its core, the academic enterprise.

We invite you to take every opportunity to immerse yourself in CAU; visit the campus, volunteer on a project, talk with our faculty, staff and students. We welcome your engagement and assure you that your involvement will result in an even stronger and more vibrant Clark Atlanta University.
