Howardiana: University Community

The establishment of Howard University and its development has been appropriately described as “one of the great romances of American education.” Of great historical significance is the fact that Howard’s incorporators, who also comprised the first Board of Trustees, confirmed their faith in the institution by adopting a policy ensuring the University forever open to all individuals irrespective of race, sex, creed or national origin. This open door policy has enabled the University to benefit from the extraordinary talent in its diverse community.
