• Upcoming Alumni Forums & Webinars

    Posted on April 19, 2014 by in Forums

    Dear Members of the Howard University Community:

    The Presidential Search Committee, in concert with the Board’s Transition Committee, has developed an extensive outreach process to engage Howard’s key stakeholders, including students, faculty, staff, alumni and other stakeholders.  As part of this process, on-campus forums have been designed to gain input and insight from the University’s faculty, students and staff.  The forums are opportunities to discuss more fully the future direction of the University, the expectations for the next president, and the process for selecting the president. The perspectives shared in these forums will contribute to a highly effective and successful presidential search process, and lay the foundation for the direction of the University’s future.  This is to advise you of the forums to be held over the next weeks.
