All Clear on Potential Gunman

Tuesday, October 17, 2017

Dear Howard University Community,
At approximately 11:52 this afternoon, Howard University received a call from students in the Ralph Bunche Center reporting a shooting at the College of Medicine. Officers at the College of Medicine responded immediately and did not hear or see anything suspicious. During the time of the search, the Metropolitan Police Department received anonymous calls of a potential armed gunman on campus. 
In accordance with safety protocols, authorities safely evacuated and cleared several buildings including the Administration Building, the Mudd Building, College of Medicine, and the Annex building which houses the College of Nursing and Allied Health Sciences. Canine units were deployed to sweep the buildings. The University Community was asked to stay in place and shelter in place.

Title IX Updates from DOE

Monday, October 2, 2017

Dear Howard University Community,
On September 22, the U.S. Department of Education announced an update regarding Title IX as it applies to college and university campuses. With this announcement, the Department ofEducation withdrew specific guidance that the previous administration issued and announced that the Department would begin preparing replacement guidance. The replacement guidance will go through a government rule-making process that includes an opportunity for public comment.  This can sometimes be a lengthy process, and the University will continue to closely monitor any developments or changes that affect Title IX law.
