School: Clark Atlanta University

Location: Atlanta, GA

Founded: 1988

Previously existing as separate institutions, Clark College and Atlanta University joined together in 1988 for purposes of economy and efficiency, becoming one of the more popular HBCUs. Recently they have enlisted the help of Mack Scogin Merrill Elam Architects to revamp their Trevor Arnett Building, which is a historic home to paintings from African-American artists.
