Bison family, President Vinson has a special message for you! As we embark on the first day of Spring Semester, let’s take a moment to hear his words of inspiration and guidance.

Great to welcome students from Howard University to U.S. Department of Transportation today. Now that we're underway in America's infrastructure decade, there's never been a better time to work in public service.

“Are we alone in the Universe?” The question has spun in human minds for eternity, and Howard University's chemistry department may have found that answer. Research from department head and professor Jim Cleaves, Ph.D., and team can quickly and reliably determine whether matter contains past or present life exist based on chemical analysis instruments.

“This general approach could be used for all sorts of chemical diagnostics,” he said. “There are so many possibilities.”

Tune in to our first episode of 2024 as Jose Cadiz, our director of development in institutional giving, joins host Frank Tramble to explore what we can do as a campus community to support those who identify as black and q***r.

In America, 1.2 million adults identify as Black and LGBTQ+, but for many within that intersectional identity, the layered discrimination of race and sexuality takes its toll.

Here at Howard University, efforts to support LGBTQ+ students have resulted in the formation of the Intercultural Affairs and LGBTQ+ Resource Center. In 2022, according to BestCollege.com and the Campus Pride Index Tool, Howard was named the no. 1 most inclusive HBCU for LGBTQ-identifying students.

Take a listen into the crucial role of resources for LGBTQ+ students and staff, the importance of understanding and using correct and preferred pronouns, and how to prepare our students to carry these values into the world and workforce.

You can listen to HU2U on all your favorite platforms: Apple Podcasts, Spotify, Google Podcasts, Amazon Music, or Radio Public. It’s time to connect, learn, and be inspired!

A statement from Rev. Kenyatta Gilbert, Ph.D. on the Mays Hall vandalism video.

Howard University was recently alerted of a TikTok video documenting an unlawful break-in at Benjamin E. Mays Hall, the building that housed the Howard University School of Divinity from 1987 - 2015. We take this incident of trespassing very seriously and the Howard University Department of Public Safety (DPS) has already begun investigating the matter.

We mourn the loss of Richard Hunt, a visionary sculptor whose masterpiece, 'A Bridge Across and Beyond', proudly stands in front of the Blackburn Center at Howard University and as well as many other remarkable sculptures that grace our campus. His passing on December 16 leaves a void in the art world, but his legacy lives on in his captivating sculptures. A pioneer who intertwined elements of Black history into his abstract creations, Hunt was celebrated for his unique ability to bring metal and steel to life. As we remember his brilliant career, which garnered national attention and critical acclaim, we reflect on how his art has enriched our lives. Rest in peace, Richard Hunt, your art will continue to inspire generations to come.

Empowering Dreams at Howard University!

The Xometry Scholars Program is making a profound impact in the lives of engineering students. Eight talented individuals are set to receive full scholarships to study mechanical engineering, thanks to a generous $900,000 donation from Xometry, Inc. This initiative is more than just financial aid; it's a beacon of hope and opportunity.

Just ask Noel Obinna Obi, a dedicated sophomore from Houston, who believes that without this scholarship, his journey at Howard's College of Engineering and Architecture might have been impossible.

Howard University proudly announces a groundbreaking $20 million donation from Carrie Walton Penner and Greg Penner to fortify the GRACE Grant Endowed Fund.

This fund aims to erase college costs and boost graduation rates for first-year students. The GRACE (Graduation Retention Access to Continued Excellence) Grant program matches 100% for students receiving the maximum Pell Grant and extends aid to those with a $0 expected family contribution (EFC). EFC GRACE recipients have a 42% higher four-year graduation rate compared to peers without this support, showcasing the transformative power of financial assistance in higher education.

President Ben Vinson III, Ph.D., expressed his profound gratitude for this contribution, recognizing its potential to change lives: "I am extremely grateful to Carrie Walton Penner and Greg Penner for their support of Howard students through the GRACE Grant, which benefits our undergraduate students who face financial barriers to completing their studies on time."

This sentiment echoes the University's commitment to empowering students, a vision shared by the Penners, who are dedicated to ensuring every child has access to high-quality education.
