The original schedule was designed with contingencies for snow days secondary to inclement weather. The revised schedule that is being implemented utilizes those contingency days. Therefore, we will still provide the full amount of instructional time necessary for academic programs, without having to cancel or disrupt spring break, or change the date of commencement.
Campus Response: 2018 Weather Emergency
Howard University was adversely impacted by extreme weather experienced across the District early this winter. The resulting widespread damage was felt across campus, including significant damage to many academic buildings and facilities. Remediation and restoration of those buildings is a top priority. While this process is underway, the University remains committed to minimizing the effect to faculty, staff, students, and the broader HU community.
