Nestled in the heart of the nation’s capital, Howard University is one of the most renowned destinations for higher education in the country. Ranked as the No. 2 HBCU (historically Black college or university) in the country, Howard is committed to advancing its mission to provide an “educational experience of exceptional quality” and is buoyed by its motto: excellence in truth and service. Since the onset of the pandemic, the University has closed the largest philanthropic gifts of its nearly 155-year history. Alumni giving has increased almost two-fold, and the University has seen a double-digit increase in applications for the past three years. Boasting a legacy of iconic alumni like U.S. Vice President Kamala D. Harris and the late Supreme Court Justice Thurgood Marshall, the proud tradition of Howard University is poised for unprecedented acceleration.
