Clark Atlanta University Launches Partnership with Entercom


Clark Atlanta University has announced a strategic partnership with Entercom to provide students a unique and unprecedented opportunity to gain access to one of the nation's leading media and entertainment companies. The partnership will expose students to top representatives in programming, sales, administration, and on-air talent, among others. Additionally, it will create a pipeline for future job opportunities.

The initiative launches with a private, virtual event for students on Wednesday, September 30 at 7 pm EDT. Attendees include: Clark Atlanta University President George T. French and Entercom Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer David Field.

"This is an exciting opportunity for our scholars," said George T. French Jr., Ph.D. president of Clark Atlanta University. "Partnerships with media conglomerates such as Entercom is a continuation of Clark Atlanta University's Mass Media Arts Department's legacy and dedication to ensuring our students are prepared and globally competitive in the communications industry."

Mass Media Arts (MMA), the second largest department in the School of Arts & Sciences, offers degree programs in Radio/Television/Film, Journalism and Public Relations with graduates excelling in many industries and professions. One of the department's key goals is to provide students with a learning environment that merges scholarly content with real-world opportunities. This relationship with Entercom is another pathway to the school accomplishing this objective.

"I am a huge advocate of students learning inside and outside of the classroom," said Garry Yates, interim chair of Clark Atlanta University Mass Media Arts. "We are committed to preparing our students to excel, whether they choose to be academicians or practitioners. We're ecstatic to establish this channel that will give them coveted access to such a media powerhouse like Entercom."

"This partnership with Clark Atlanta University builds on our focus to create a more inclusive and diverse team and workplace," said Rick Caffey, senior vice president and market manager for Entercom Atlanta. "We're excited to share our resources and insights in the form of real-world learning, beginning with this first virtual event on the future of audio."
