Installed by International Chief Tribune, Hon. Richard P. McCully (McKellar Chapter '69) and International Executive Board member, Hon. Kimberly Gallant (Russell Chapter '00), Phi Alpha Delta welcomed one of our newest pre-law chapters at Clark Atlanta University in Georgia. Junior political science major Maya McGowan was tapped to serve as the chapter's first president. She said some of the goals of the chapter include assisting CAU administration with improving its offerings of pre- law programming and enhancing opportunities offered to students interested in a career in law. "I am proud of the trailblazing members who are committed to making this chapter a prestigious and innovative one," said McGowan. "After being inducted into the Spelman C o l l e g e P r e - L a w Chapter in spring of 2016, I did not understand why my illustrious university did not have this prominent fraternity on campus. I realized that I could no longer wait for someone else to be a pioneer," McGowan explained. According to McGowan, the area around the Atlanta University Center, which includes CAU, has one of the highest rates of released inmates returning to the community from prison. CAU's chapter plans to tackle this need head-on through programming to better understand the criminal justice system, and partnerships with non-profit groups Phi Alpha Delta Welcomes Clark Atlanta University Pre-Law Chapter to help reintegrate exoffenders. "It was never about accolades. It's about giving future CAU Panthers an opportunity to serve," McGowan continued.

Clark Atlanta University is a member of the United Negro College Fund (UNCF) and is the largest institution in the Atlanta University Center Consortium. P.A.D. Welcomes
