Spelman College is a four-year liberal arts women's college located in Atlanta, Georgia, United States. The college is part of the Atlanta University Center academic consortium in Atlanta. Founded in 1881 as the Atlanta Baptist Female Seminary, Spelman was the fourth historically black female institution of higher education to receive its collegiate charter in 1924. It thus holds the distinction of being one of America's oldest historically black colleges for women.

Spelman is ranked among the nation's top liberal arts colleges by U.S. News and World Reports. The college is ranked among the top 50 four-year colleges and universities for producing Fulbright Scholars, and was ranked the second largest producer of African-American college graduates who attend medical school. Forbes magazine ranks Spelman among the nation's top ten best women's colleges. Moreover, Spelman has been ranked the #1 regional college in the South by U.S. News and World Report and is ranked among the Best 373 Colleges and Universities in America by the Princeton Review.

The daughters of Bill Cosby, Henry Louis Gates, Gerald Levert, Martin Luther King, Jr., Morgan Freeman and Sidney Poitier attended Spelman. Spelman is also the alma mater of several notable Americans including the CEO of Sam's Club and former Executive Vice President of Walmart, Rosalind Brewer; Pulitzer Prize Winner, Alice Walker; Dean of Harvard College, Evelynn M.
