Clark Atlanta University President to Step Down

Walter D. Broadnax, president of Clark Atlanta University since 2002, has announced that he will retire at the end of the current academic year. Executive Vice President Carlton E. Brown at Clark Atlanta will serve as interim president until a permanent replacement can be found.

During Dr. Broadnax’s tenure, Clark Atlanta saw its enrollment increase, its budget balanced, and the university reaccredited. But Broadnax had a rocky relationship with the university’s faculty who disagreed with many of the president’s cost-cutting moves.
