Historically Black Clark Atlanta University has made a major commitment to campus infrastructure by announcing the construction of three new buildings on campus. The university will build a new dormitory for first-year students, a second dining hall, and a student success center.
The centerpiece of this project is a state-of-the-art residence hall that will accommodate 400 students. This residence hall will be the first of its kind to be built and owned by Clark Atlanta University since 1996.
The new student success center aims to streamline resources and programs to support student success. It will focus on fostering collaborative efforts and accelerating initiatives to enhance student persistence and completion.
Construction of the new buildings will begin soon. To finance these projects, Clark Atlanta University will utilize a combination of debt financing and contributions from a food service vendor.
George T. French, president of Clark Atlanta University, stated that the decision to move ahead on three construction projects simultaneously “is a testament to our unwavering commitment to our scholars’ success. It is a direct response to the increasing enrollment and the need for on-campus student housing.”
