Clark Atlanta University officials say the 75 students, faculty and administrators have been inducted into Phi Kappa Phi, a national honor society.
School spokesman Larry Calhoun says Clark Atlanta is the first private, historically black college or university to be granted a chapter of Phi Kappa Phi — which was founded in 1897 at the University of Maine.
Since its inception, the honor society has grown to more than 300 campuses in the United States, Puerto Rico and the Philippines, and includes more than 1 million members.
University President, Carlton Brown, says the honor society establishing a chapter at Clark Atlanta is a milestone in the university's history.
Phi Kappa Phi officials say the organization is the oldest of its kind to accept students from all academic disciplines.
