Spelman College Inspiration Through Photography
Mission of Spelman College: Spelman College, a historically Black college and a global leader in the education of women of African descent, is dedicated to academic excellence in the liberal arts and sciences and the intellectual, creative, ethical and leadership development of its students. Spelman empowers the whole person to engage the many cultures of the world and inspires a commitment to positive social change.
Spelman College has been recognized among the top 100 national liberal arts colleges, and for the tenth straight year, is the No. 1 historically Black college and university in the country, according to the 2017 U.S. News & World Report “Best Colleges” rankings.
One-third of our students enter graduate or professional school immediately after college graduation, resulting in Spelman being one of the nation’s leading producers of Black female medical students and doctoral candidates in science, technology, engineering and mathematics.
Above all else, they are making waves as great women, friends, sisters, mothers, leaders and overall good people, quite a few of which are my friends. If you have a young woman in your life you are mentoring or raising, I hope you suggest Spelman College as an option for their life journey as well!1
