Dear Howard University Community,
I am pleased to deliver “Howard University in the District of Columbia,” a comprehensive report that provides an overview of the University’s contributions to the District of Columbia and our steadfast commitment to social impact.
Our beloved institution is a significant contributor to the Washington, D.C. economy, with more than 9,500 alumni living in the District. Spending more than $800 million annually to contribute to the District’s local economy, we also employ more than 1,500 D.C. residents. Additionally, Howard provides free legal services for residents, operates workforce development programs, offers healthcare services to DC’s most vulnerable populations, and our students, faculty, staff, and alumni offer a helping hand via a plethora of service learning initiatives.
