Clark Atlanta University Learn Lead Change


President Carlton E. Brown  

Welcome to Clark Atlanta University. I am honored and humbled to be the third president of Clark Atlanta University, an institution with a rich heritage and a bright future. The founders of our parent institutions, Atlanta University and Clark College, long ago dreamt of a university that would draw students to a superior learning environment, and become a community of scholars forging a shared identity and developing future world leaders.

Clark Atlanta University is an intellectual center of an international city. Our exemplary faculty is working to deepen and expand critical research efforts across all academic disciplines. Our academic community flourishes through our partnerships with organizations and individuals in this great city and beyond. Our students benefit from their experiences in and out of the classroom as well as around the world and have helped our University become one of the most active and service-oriented campuses in the country.

As the largest institution of higher education in the Atlanta University Center, Clark Atlanta University offers an array of undergraduate and graduate programs in the liberal arts and sciences and professional degree programs in education, business, and social work. Ours is a diverse population with wide-ranging interests and talents, but with shared ideals of academic freedom and excellence, and a shared purpose of service to the nation and the world.

At Clark Atlanta University, we are proud of our legacy. Those who have graduated from Clark Atlanta University have benefitted from the knowledge, ideals, and experiences received in this place, and as alumni they are lifelong partners with the University in making a stronger imprint in the local and world community.
