Welcome Howard University Community,

Office of the President: Self-Care

Monday, August 17, 2020

Dear Howard University Community,

As we come to the close of another week and move one step closer to the beginning of theFall, I’d like to take a moment to pause and have us think about self-care. With all of thestress and uncertainty of the coronavirus pandemic, coupled with preparations to prepare the campus for the next semester, I am sure many of us have let our own needs take a back burner to work and family. However, I want to encourage you to take a little “me” time for the benefit of your own health and those around you.

After consultation with our public health faculty experts, District of Columbia officials, University leadership, and monitoring the status of the COVID-19 pandemic locally, regionally and nationally, we have made the very difficult decision to move all undergraduate courses for the Fall 2020 semester fully online, and non-residential. The residence halls will be closed, with the exception of The Axis, which is apartment living.
