Spelman College

Atlanta, Georgia

Spelman College is a four-year liberal arts women's college located in Atlanta, Georgia. The college is part of the Atlanta University Center academic consortium in Atlanta. Spelman holds the distinction as America's oldest historically black college for women.

Spelman has amassed an endowment fund of over $291 million, and is ranked currently at 75 in the 2008 U.S. News and World Report ranking of all U.S. liberal arts colleges. The 2008 U.S. News and World Report also ranked Spelman as the number one Historically Black Colleges and/or Universities.

Spelman was established on April 11, 1881 (1881-04-11) in the basement of Friendship Baptist Church in Atlanta, Georgia, by two Massachusetts teachers from the Oread Institute: Harriet E. Giles and Sophia B. Packard. The school was originally named Atlanta Baptist Female Seminary and then in 1884, Spelman Seminary after Laura Spelman, an Oread student and wife of John D. Rockefeller who helped to fund the school.

Spelman is part of the largest consortium of historically Black institutions of higher learning in the world. Its four partner institutions include Clark Atlanta University, the Interdenominational Theological Center, Morehouse College and Morehouse School of Medicine. Spelman shares cross-registration with its undergraduate partners. They also share the Robert W. Woodruff Library.
