The Isabella T. Jenkins Honors Program is a vibrant academic community designed for students whose high school accomplishments indicate superior intellectual ability, motivation, and openness of mind. To encourage inquiry, creative thinking, and high scholarship, the University Honors and Scholars Program emphasizes breadth and depth of knowledge by nurturing intellectual independence.
While all students who attend Clark Atlanta University on a four-year scholarship are included in our scholar community, all students within the University may apply to pursue honors-level curriculum through our program. Class discussion, question and answer sessions, organized debates, student-initiated research projects and presentations by groups and individuals help Honors Program students become self-directed. Students are encouraged to develop their personalities and to pursue non-academic interests.
