Campus Ambassador: Elmer Jones III, Clark Atlanta University

I love Clark Atlanta University because it has a diverse student body that includes students from various regions and countries. The environment is a very nurturing one, and faculty and staff will serve as mentors, something that’s more difficult to do at larger institutions.

Profile: Clark Atlanta University

Founded in 1988, Clark Atlanta University is the product of a merger between Atlanta University (the graduate school where W.E.B. Du Bois once taught) and the undergraduate Clark College, both founded in the 1860s. In addition to being the largest institution in the United Negro College Fund, Clark Atlanta is a member of the Atlanta University Center, the nation's largest conglomeration of historically black institutions; other members include Spelman, Morehouse, and Morehouse School of Medicine. Despite the controversial declaration of an "enrollment emergency" in 2009, Clark's enrollment exceeded expectations this year with 3,941 students, the most in the AUC.
