Clark Atlanta University Partners With Georgia Piedmont Technical College

Clark Atlanta University, the historically Black educational institution in Georgia, has entered into an agreement with Georgia Piedmont Technical College in Clarkston. Georgia Piedmont Technical College enrolls nearly 4,000 students and African Americans make up 78 percent of the student body.

The agreement establishes the Access 4 Achievement program that calls for dual admissions and joint enrollments, program-specific transfer agreements, and joint teaching opportunities for faculty and graduate students.

Jabari Simama, president of Georgia Piedmont Technical College, said “students enrolled in the Access 4 Achievement program will graduate prepared for today’s job market, as well as ready to adapt to sudden shifts in market demands well into the future.”

Dr. Simama is a graduate of the University of Bridgeport in Connecticut. He holds a master’s degree from Clark Atlanta University and a Ph.D. from Emory University in Atlanta. Dr. Simama is the author of Civil Rights to Cyber Rights: Broadband & Digital Equality in the Age of Obama (Community Technology Publications, 2009).
