Howard, a national treasure and a leading research university, is dedicated to educating students from diverse backgrounds at the undergraduate, graduate, and professional levels. Howard‘s unique mission addresses higher education needs that are important to the strategic interests of our nation and our world.
The more than 10,000 students on our four campuses contribute to a learning community engaged in scholarship and service. We encourage discovery and innovation and are on the move towards becoming a major research institution with a global footprint. At Howard, we take pride in our dynamic student body, in our committed faculty and staff as well as in our alumni who have helped define our mission for nearly 150 years.
More than 100,000 have graduated from the University and have had an impact at home and abroad. At Howard, we do more than honor legacies; we build upon them and make them more than words. We use them as examples of what can be as we urge our students to have a sense of history, of self and of service.
I invite you to see our achievements, to be inspired as well as to find answers to questions about our present and future direction.
