Spelman College, founded in 1881, is renowned for its long history of providing quality education for African American women to prepare them for leadership roles. The college campus consists of more than thirty-two acres and twenty-five buildings on the west side of Atlanta. Spelman's campus houses eleven buildings completed before 1927, several of which are included in the National Register of Historic Places designation Spelman shares with neighboring colleges. It is one of five institutions that make up the Atlanta University Center (AUC), the largest consortium of higher educational facilities for black students in the world with a total population of 16,000 students. The Campus Heritage grant will allow Spelman to complete a campus preservation plan and, ultimately, to apply for National Historic Landmark Status.

Spelman College received a Getty grant in 2002 for $65,000 to support campus heritage planning.
