Calling All Freshmen! Make Your Voice Heard

WASHINGTON (Aug. 9) – You’re new. Almost nobody knows you and you hardly know a soul, but over the next few days, you have the biggest voice of any student group on campus!

You can change things at Howard University before you ever step into a class! You, the freshmen!

You want to let the University know what you want; how it can best serve you?

Well now is your time to voice your opinion and possibly change some things at Howard. On Wednesday, Aug. 17, during orientation in Cramton Auditorium, all incoming freshmen will get to participate in the survey that University officials and others use to better serve you and to better understand who you are and what you want.

It’s called the Cooperative Institutional Research Program (CIRP) survey, and every year hundreds of thousands of freshmen at two- and four-year colleges and universities across the nation use them to tell their schools who they are, how they got there and what they hope to achieve while in school and beyond.

Thanks to comments from our previous freshmen, the University has increased athletic activities and study abroad and research opportunities. It also expanded university resource allocation and counseling center services, and it extended the hours of operations of the library and the counseling center.

At Howard, the survey is administered by the Office of Institutional Assessment & Evaluation, headed by Gerunda Hughes, Ph.D., in conjunction with the Higher Education Research Institute at UCLA.

The survey asks questions about you, your experiences and your aspirations, such as your high school experience, what you value, your educational and career plans and what kind of academic support and programs you want at Howard.

Howard officials look at that information, which is published annually in The American Freshman, and consider how we can best serve you and the University’s institutional mission and commitment to its students. While you are here, you will have many other such opportunities to provide your input, be it surveys, focus groups or Town Hall meetings. Please take advantage of these opportunities.

So, welcome to the Howard family, and let YOUR voice be heard!
