The Road Forward

Friday, April 13, 2018

Dear Howard University Community:
Over the course of the past several days, I have had the benefit of hearing members of our broad and diverse community speak movingly about their Howard University experience. They have shared the personal moments that connect them to this institution and affirmed their intentions to make Howard her absolute best. Our beloved University is the result of generations of a collective body committed to moving forward to achieve excellence in every endeavor. Without a doubt, Howard is a labor of love.
The words of our own Howard Thurman, an author, philosopher, theologian, educator, civil rights leader, and the first Dean of the Andrew Rankin Memorial Chapel (1932-1944) best capture my introspection in these moments:

Important Update from President Frederick

Dear Howard University Community,

I pen this letter to provide some relevant updates regarding Howard’s commitment to ensuring work integrity across all University offices, specifically the Office of Financial Aid. In accordance with my commitment to continuous progress, in February 2015, I initiated a proactive review of the Howard University Office of Financial Aid to ensure the office was providing the best support to our campus community.
