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.

The Tragedy in Las Vegas

Monday, October 2, 2017

Dear Howard University Community:
On behalf of the entire Howard University family, I wish to extend our deepest condolences and prayers to the victims, survivors, and their families of last night’s tragic event in Las Vegas. Especially those within our Howard University community who have been affected directly and indirectly.
Words cannot adequately convey the empathy, grief, and dismay that we must share as a nation, and global community, for the senseless acts of violence that have been perpetuated on innocent people. While our nation, once again, faces unsettling times it is our responsibility to seek to determine why these atrocities continue to occur and work toward solutions to prevent them.
