Incoming Students Embrace “Truth and Service”

WASHINGTON (August 6, 2014) – Howard University is inviting all incoming students to continue to build upon the university’s legacy of service to humanity, through their 2nd Annual Howard University Day of Service (HUDOS) on Friday, August 22.

HUDOS, a University wide initiative, provides an opportunity for incoming students to embrace the University’s motto, “Truth and Service.” It is modeled after Howard University's nationally recognized Alternative Spring Break program and will provide service learning opportunities as a part of the students’ introductory experience to the University.

Howard University President Wayne A. I. Frederick will give the charge to service address to current students, faculty, staff, administrators and alumni who will volunteer across the Washington DC metropolitan area to discover the power of lending a hand while engaging with the DC community.  Faculty and staff will lead and serve along with students and alumni at the individual service learning initiative sites.

HUDOS will focus on six service learning initiatives: education, environmental services, HIV/AIDS, poverty and homelessness, violence, and voter registration. The locations of service are determined by the service project preference selected on the application. Students will be notified of their service initiative assignment via email.
