Clark Atlanta University (CAU) will celebrate its 2015 Founders Week March 16-21 with global leadership perspectives that shape and inform the context of 21st century activism and remembrance of a seminal civil rights struggle by which activists 50 years ago pursued their equal voting rights under the law. Condoleezza Rice, Ph.D., the 66th U.S. Secretary of State, will deliver the 2015 Founders Day Convocation address on Thursday, March 19, at 10:45am on the University's main campus. The event is free and open to the public. Seating will be provided on a first come-first seated basis.
While CAU was established in July 1988, Founders Day annually honors the institution’s unique history, celebrating the legacies of its two parent institutions, Atlanta University, the nation’s first African-American graduate school (1865), and Clark College, the nation’s first private, liberal arts college serving a primarily African-American student population (1869). Embracing nearly 300 years of combined history, CAU today is a private, United Methodist Church-affiliated, doctoral research institution that educates nearly 3,500 aspiring leaders from across the United States and myriad foreign nations at the bachelor’s, master’s and doctoral levels.Google Calendar ICal Import
