Title III of the Higher Education Act of 1965, as amended, Strengthening Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCU) and Strengthening Historically Black Graduate Institutions (HBGI) Programs, authorizes special assistance to strengthen the quality of developing institutions which have the desire and potential to make a substantial contribution to the higher education resources of the nation. Amendments to the Act have altered some elements of the program, but it remains as written—an instrument to provide assistance to institutions demonstrating a constructive effort to strengthen themselves.
Clark Atlanta University has two Title III Programs: HBCU and HBGI. Title III has funded project activities designed to help meet various strategic goals of the University. Title III of the Higher Education Act of 1965, as amended, authorizes these grants to strengthen institutions in the areas of Academic Quality, Fiscal Stability, Student Services and outcomes, and the quality of Intuitional Management. Clark Atlanta University was awarded two 5-year Strengthening Intuitions Grants (HBCU and HBGI) from the U.S. Department of Education.
