Clark = No Money? Posted on 01-03-2005
LadyCrimson10

I have a question for anybody who attends Clark ATL, or anybody who goes to school in the AUC. I was at work the other day talking to my manager, his cousin was a professor who used to teach at Clark and he said that Clark doesn't have any money, and thats why he left. He also said something about it losing its accreditation. Does anybody know if this is true or not.

Sorry to inform you but Clark is no longer accredited. That where i was planning on applying to until i found that out. Now i'm going to go to Howard. And because they lost their accreditation they really don't have a lot of money to give out.

Ummmmmmm......where did you hear that Clark wasn't accredited? It's kinda sudden, b/c they usually let everyone in the auc know and give clark students esp seniors time enough to make alternate plans. Don't believe everything you hear, b/c I heard that Morehouse was on the brink of losing accredation so many times from people who had nothing to do with the auc.

DANG THATS MESSED UP I WANTED TO ATTEND THERE, THIS KIND OF MAKES SENSE BECAUSE CLARK HAD ALWAYS BEEN ON PRINCETON REVIEW LIST FOR THE "BEST SOUTHEASTERN UNIVERSITIES" FOR THE PAST YEARS AND ALL OF A SUDDEN NOW ITS NOT ON THERE, SPELMAN & MOREHOUSE ARE STILL REPPIN FOR THE HBCUS BUT I WAS WONDERING WHY CLARK WASN'T ON THERE. THATS ALSO MEANS THAT MOREHOUSE HAS ALWAYS BEEN ON THE LIST FOR THE BEST SOUTHEASTERN SCHOOLS SO THAT BEING NOT ACCREDITED WAS A LIE. SEEING THAT CLARK ISN'T ON THERE THIS YEAR WITH THIS NEWS MAKES WHAT WAS SAID SEEM VERY TRUE. WHY IS IT THAT CLARK STILL HAS ON ITS WEBSITE THAT ITS ONE OF THE BEST SOUTHEASTERN SCHOOLS, IS THAT TO HIDE WHAT HAPPENED? HOPEFULLY NOT FOR THOSE THAT WANT TO GO THERE SAKE IT SEEMS LIKE THEY USE THAT BESTSOUTHEASTERN LOGO TO ATTRACT STUDENTS TO THEIR SCHOOL BECAUSE THATS HOW THEY GOT MY ATTENSTION TO WANT TO ATTEND AND ALSO ITS REPUTATION AND LOCATION IN THE ATL REPPIN DAT CLASS OF O5 IN MIA "305" :wink:

Clark Atlanta hasn't lost its accreditation.Why would Clark build a new classroom building as well as new dorms if it really didn't have any money? Why would Clark be loosing its accreditation since many of the classes have more Morehouse and Spelman students than Clark students? Why would alot of kids I talk to have scholarships from the school, if money really wasn't provided? Granted, Clark probably isn't where it should be, but to say it's not accreditated is ludicrous. Before believing rumors, always check the facts. To find out more information, please contact the school. Clark is not about to shut down.

Who told u Clark lost accreditation?? They go up 4 evaluation in '06.... all HBCU's go 4 evaluation every 6yrs :?: it's something like that..... In '06 its clarks time and there is no sign of them losing their accreditation. They had 2 close some programs b/c they ran out of grants and those programs barely had enough students for all that money they were spending.... so it was in a way a waste... So yes people got fired cuz they were in those programs... Clark has quite a few recognitions: Clark Atlanta University is the only private Historically Black University in the nation classified as a Doctoral/Research-Intensive University by the Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching in 2000. Clark Atlanta University is ranked a national university by the U.S. News and World Report, 2004 Edition. Clark Atlanta University was ranked as one of the top 10 institutions in the nation as a "Top College for African Americans," Black Enterprise Magazine, January, 2003. **** Check the facts 1st! Clark isn't going anywhere! TRUST!!! If u need more info e-mail me mycheri1732@sbcglobal.net ..... I'ma senior and yes as u can c I luv Clark and I can't wait 2 show my panther pride!!!! **** Luv~ya'll

Where did you get this info???? CAU has made some major cut backs in these past couple years but it is still an accredited institution.
