Check out below of part 1 and 2, respectively, of the Tom Joyner Foundation interview with President Brown.
Clark Atlanta University is the Tom Joyner Foundation’s August 2014 ‘School of the Month’.
The foundation, formed by the nationally syndicated radio personality Tom Joyner, chose Clark Atlanta, as part of its on-going effort to assist these institutions in broadening and strengthening their efforts to raise money to help keep students attending HBCUs.
Carlton E. Brown is the university’s third president, appointed in 2008.
Clark Atlanta University (CAU) was formed in 1988 as a result of the consolidation of two independent historically black institutions — Atlanta University (1865) and Clark College (1869). It is a United Methodist Church-related, private, co educational, residential, and comprehensive urban research university. The University offers undergraduate, graduate and professional, and non-degree certificate programs.
The university, with an enrollment of nearly 3,500 students and 179 faculty, offers 38 major areas of study through four schools – Arts and Sciences; Business Administration; Education; and Social Work.
As one of the Tom Joyner Foundation ‘Schools of the Month’, each school will be promoted by the Tom Joyner Morning Show and receive those funds raised from listeners, alumni and other interested parties that month. The show, aired in 115 markets around the country, reaches nearly eight million listeners every week.
The Foundation’s ‘Schools of the Month’ for the rest of the year are as follows: September- Norfolk State University, Norfolk, Va; October- Alabama State University, Montgomery, Ala; November – Southern University and A&M College, Baton Rouge, La.
